"O Lord, Thy Glory We Behold"
O Lord, Thy glory we behold,
Though not with mortal eyes;
That glory, on the Father's throne,
No human sight descries.
'Tis thence --- now Christ is gone on high,
Redemption's work complete ---
The Spirit brings His glory nigh,
To those who for Him wait.
And we our great Forerunner see,
In His own glory there;
Yet not ashamed, with such as we,
As Firstborn, all to share.
The Father's love, the source of all,
Sweeter than all it gives,
Shines on us now without recall,
And lasts while Jesus lives.
The new creation's stainless joy
Gleams through the present gloom;
That world of bliss without alloy,
The saint's eternal home.
By: John Nelson Darby (1800-1882)
A Little Note from Cobblestone Road Ministries:
For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face:
now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon,
to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the
Lamb is the light thereof.
To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein
he hath made us accepted in the beloved.
