Oh, What a Wonderful Place

1
Oh, what a wonderful place
  Jesus has given to me!
Saved by His glorious grace,
  I may be even as He.
When with my Lord I appear,
  Like Him I know I shall be;
But while I walk with Him here,
  I may be even as He.
  Even as He, even as He,
Wonderful words that even we,
Saved by His marvelous grace may be
  One with the Savior, even as He.
2
One in His death on the tree,
  One as He rose from the dead;
I from the curse am as free
  E’en as my glorious head.
One on the throne by His side,
  One in His sonship divine;
One as the Bridegroom and bride,
  One as the branch and the vine.
3
One in His merits I stand,
  One as I pray in His name;
All that His worth can command,
  I can with confidence claim.
One in His faith and His love,
  One in His life I may be.
Sealed by the heavenly Dove,
  I may be holy as He.

A young brother called this song at our table meeting Lord's day. It was the first time I had heard it. Beautiful. OH! What a wonderful place.

Embedded in this wonderful hymn is the high peak of the divine revelation that we sinners can be made sons of God, even as He is, who knew no sin, so are we in life and nature and expression. Do you know how many times in the New Testament is this notion mentioned, that we may be even as He?
