Page 16 - His rest in Heaven I know, I joy to find His path below, We meet to own that place alone Around the broken bread — The dead whose life is hid with Christ Remembering Jesus dead.
Page 20 - He sits there for me, That glory is my own. 2 The heart of God flows forth in love, A deep eternal stream ; Through that beloved Son it flows To me as unto Him. And, looking on His face, I know — Weak, worthless, though I be — How deep, how measureless, how sweet, That love of God to me. 3 The Lord Who sits upon the throne With them His joy will share, And there the sprinkled blood appears, That He may set them there. From drear, dark places of the earth, From depths of sin and shame, He takes...
Page 22 - WAS journeying in the noontide, When His light shone o'er my road — And I saw Him in that glory — Saw him — Jesus, Son of God. All around, in noonday splendour, Earthly scenes lay fair and bright — But my eyes no longer see them For the glory of that light. Others in the summer sunshine, Wearily may journey on — I have seen a light from heaven, Past the brightness of the sun — Light that knows no cloud, no waning, Light wherein I see His face — All His love's uncounted treasures, All...
Page 7 - Can reach, or cloud, or dim, — The present Lord, the living God, And we alone with Him. We know Him as we could not know, Through Heaven's golden years ; We there shall see His glorious face, But Mary saw His tears. The touch that heals the broken heart Is never felt above, His angels know His blessedness, His way-worn saints His love. When in the glory and the rest We joyfully adore, Remembering the desert way, We yet shall praise Him more.
Page 48 - A Man of Sorrows, of toil and tears, An outcast Man and a lonely ; But He looked on me, and through endless years Him must I love — Him only. And I would abide where He abode, And follow His steps for ever ; His people my people, His God my God, In the land beyond the river.
Page 31 - Long the blessed Guide has led me By the desert road ; Now I see the golden towers, City of my God. There amidst the love and glory He is waiting yet ; On His hands a name is graven He can ne'er forget 32 THE BRIDE.
Page 31 - IDST the darkness, storm, and sorrow, One bright gleam I see — Well I know the blessed morrow, Christ will come for me. 'Midst the light, and peace, and glory Of the Father's home, Christ for me is watching, waiting — Waiting till I come.
Page 33 - There in me displayed. He who in His hour of sorrow Bore the curse alone ; I who through the lonely desert Trod where He had gone. He and I in that bright glory One deep joy shall share; Mine, to be for ever with Him ; His, that I am there.
Page 23 - He walked apart. I have seen the Face of Jesus — Tell me not of aught beside ; I have heard the Voice of Jesus — All my soul is satisfied. In the radiance of the glory First I saw His blessed Face, And for ever shall that glory Be my home, my dwelling-place. Sinners, it was not to Angels All this wondrous love was given, But to one who scorned, despised Him, Scorned and hated Christ in heaven.
