C.M.


1
O LORD, Thy glory we behold,
Though not with mortal eyes;
That glory on the Father's throne
No human sight descries.
2
'Tis thence - nnow Thou art gone on high,
Redemption's work complete -
The Spirit brings Thy glory nigh
To those who for Thee wait.
3
'Tis not for human eye to see,
Nor human ear tohear,
No heart conceive what it may be,
Or bring the prospect near.
4
But God, in love, has freely giv'n
His Spirit, who reveals
All He's prepared fo these, in heav'n,
Who here on earth He seals.
5
And we our great Forerunner see
In His own glory there;
Yet not ashamed with such as we,
As Firstborn, all to share.
6
The new creation's stainless joy
Gleams through the present gloom;
That world of bliss without alloy,
The saints' eternal home.

J.N. Darby
