122: O LORD, the bright and blessed hopeby Sir Edward Denny (1796-1889)
1 O LORD, the bright and blessed hope,
That's cheered us through the past,
Of full eternal rest in Thee,
Will be fulfilled at last.
2 Undazzled by the glorious light
Which shines upon Thy face,
We'll see Thee then without a cloud ---
Brought there through boundless grace.
3 Praise, endless praise, alone becomes
That bright and blessed place,
Where every eye beholds unveiled,
The mysteries of Thy grace.
4 Past conflict then; O Lord, 'tis ours
Through everlasting days,
To sing our song of victory there,
And only live to praise.
