"Oh Bright And Blessed Scenes"
Oh bright and blessed scenes!
Where sin can never come,
Whose sight our longing spirit weans
From earth where yet we roam.
And can we call our home
Our Father's house on high,
The rest of God our rest to come,
Our place of liberty?
Yes! in that light unstained,
Our stainless souls shall live,
Our heart's deep longings more than gained,
When God His rest shall give.
His presence there, my soul
Its rest, its joy untold
Shall find, when endless ages roll,
And time shall ne'er grow old.
Our God the center is,
His presence fills that land,
And countless myriads owned as His,
Round Him adoring stand.
Our God whom we have known,
Well known in Jesus' love,
Rests in the blessing of His own,
Before Himself above.
Glory supreme is there,
Glory that shines through all,
More precious still that love to share
As those that love did call.
Like Jesus in that place
Of light and love supreme!
Once Man of Sorrows full of grace,
Heaven's blest and endless theme!
Like Him! O grace supreme!
Like Him before Thy face,
Like Him to know that glory beam
Unhindered face to face!
Oh, love supreme and bright,
Good to the feeblest heart,
That gives us now, as Heavenly light,
What soon shall be our part!
~By John Nelson Darby (1800-1882) ~
A Little Note from Cobblestone Road Ministries:
2 Corinthians 4:18
While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things
which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal;
but the things which are not seen are eternal.
What a glorious place that is prepared for you and me!
We look beyond this temporal world, although the beauty of God
is found here, to the bright and glorious future that awaits every
Believer in Christ Jesus! He is our King and we are joint-heirs with Him.
And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament,
that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions
that were under the first testament, they which are called might
receive the promise of eternal inheritance.
