Marvel not that Christ in glory
|Marvel not that Christ in glory
All my inmost heart hath won;
Not a star to cheer my darkness,
But a light beyond the sun.
All below lies dark and shadowed,
Nothing here to claim my heart,
Save the lonely track of sorrow
Where of old He walked apart.
|Others in the earthly 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 the riches of His grace:
|All the wonders of His glory,
Deeper wonders of His love—
How for me He won, He keepeth
That high standing all above;
Not a glimpse—the veil uplifted—
But within the veil to dwell,
Gazing on His face forever,
Hearing words unspeakable.
|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 forever shall that glory
Be my home, my dwelling-place.
