Look, ye saints, the sight is glorious

Look, ye saints, the sight is glorious;
  See the Man of sorrows now;
From the fight returned victorious,
  Every knee to Him shall bow;
Crown Him! Crown Him!
  Crown Him! Crown Him!
  Crowns become the Victor’s brow.
Crown the Savior! Angels, crown Him!
  Rich the trophies Jesus brings;
In the seat of pow’r enthrone Him,
  While the vault of heaven rings:
Crown Him! Crown Him!
  Crown Him! Crown Him!
  Crown the Savior King of kings.
Sinners in derision crowned Him,
  Mocking thus the Savior’s claim;
Saints and angels crowd around Him,
  Own His title, praise His name:
Crown Him! Crown Him!
  Crown Him! Crown Him!
  Spread abroad the Victor’s fame.
Hark! those bursts of acclamation!
  Hark! those loud triumphant chords!
Jesus takes the highest station;
  O what joy the sight affords!
Crown Him! Crown Him!
  Crown Him! Crown Him!
  King of kings, and Lord of lords!

I love this song. It was last August. I was attending the New Wine conference in Somerset England. I had just been to the Rise, early morning bible study, came away singing this song, though we hadnt been singing it. It was a distant memory from childhood, which I believe the Holy Spirit stirred up. I knew then something of the great victory of Christ as I remembered these lines. When I got home I practised it up and led it at our service at the next opportunity. It still stirs me. Praise the name of Jesus.

"Look ye saints the sight is glorious..." I really enjoy this hymn. It gives me the sense of victory. The Devil, that old serpent, did not realize that he was actually being judged and destroyed on the cross. Hallelujah! Our Lord Jesus, as the seed of the woman prophesied in Gen 3:15, bruised the serpents head - the destroying of Satan was carried out on the cross.

Judged there - through the Lord's death on the cross, Satan, the old serpent, was judged, cast out. That judgment will ultimately be carried out by the overcomers as the man-child, the corporate seed of the woman (Rev. 12:9).

Lord Jesus, we love You. Gain what You are after and swiftly close this age. May we be those who cooperate with You by giving You the first place. Head us up...Make us Your overcomers...even now. Hallelujah!!! Amen.
