61: HOW wondrous the glories that meetby Robert Hawker (1753-1827)
1 HOW wondrous the glories that meet
In Jesus, and from His face shine!
His love is eternal and sweet,
'Tis human, 'tis also divine.
2 His glory --- not only God's Son,
In manhood He had His full part;
And the union of both joined in One
Forms the fountain of love in His heart.
3 The infinite worth of His blood
Has freed us from hell and from fear,
That we, as the blest sons of God,
May make His good pleasure our care.
4 O then may His glory and love
Make us walk in the service of heaven,
'Mid obedience and suffering to prove
That we to the Lamb have been given.
