Hymn Selection



O LORD, Thy glory we behold,
Though not with mortal eyes;
That glory on the Father's throne
No human sight descries.
'Tis thence - nnow Thou art gone on high,
Redemption's work complete -
The Spirit brings Thy glory nigh
To those who for Thee wait.
'Tis not for human eye to see,
Nor human ear tohear,
No heart conceive what it may be,
Or bring the prospect near.
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.
And we our great Forerunner see
In His own glory there;
Yet not ashamed with such as we,
As Firstborn, all to share.
The new creation's stainless joy
Gleams through the present gloom;
That world of bliss without alloy,
The saints' eternal home.
