O Christ, He is the fountain

1
O Christ, He is the fountain,
  The deep, sweet well of life:
Its living streams I’ve tasted
  Which save from grief and strife.
And to an ocean fulness,
  His mercy doth expand;
His grace is all-sufficient
  As by His wisdom planned.
2
O I am my Beloved’s,
  And my Beloved’s mine;
He brings a poor vile sinner
  Into His house of wine!
I stand upon His merit;
  I know no other stand.
I’m hidden in His presence
  And held by His own hand.
3
The Bride eyes not her garment,
  But her dear Bridegroom’s face;
I will not gaze at glory,
  But on my King of grace:
Not at the crown He giveth,
  But on His pierced hand;
The Lamb is all the glory,
  And my eternal stand!

I was listening to this hymn once sung on the channel rladbsl, and I was shown in the mind the scenes in an actual wedding ceremony, pertaining to the third stanza. You know how usually the wives are so concerned about their wedding gown, that they even spend much money that they would look beautiful on their wedding day. And come the actual day, the two are so excited because everything is decorated so beautifully, and everyone is dressed well and present to honor their coming together. Well, on that day when I am joined to my Saviour, may I not be concerned with my garments, or with the glories that may be around, but only with His face. For He is the beauty of wedding, and He is the glory.

And another thing I saw, that may be the beauty of His face? Well, it is the spit of the soldiers when they crucified Him. It is my spit on His face when I crucified Him. And yet there He is, loving me intensely and taking me as His own. Surely that is a humbling thought. Bless Him for all eternity. May He be blessed for all eternity. Amen.

For my people have.... Forsaken Me, the fountain of living waters, to hew out for themselves cisterns, broken cisterns, which hold no water.

Not the crown He give the but on His pierced hand. Christ paid such a price to gain me. His love is like no other. He has captured my heart. I love Him so.

One of the hymns we personally selected during our wedding meeting. So precious ❤️.

Indeed, Christ is the fountain, the deep sweet well of life.

God's dealing with His redeemed people through the Trinity was for the purpose of keeping them in the enjoyment of His riches through His divine dispensing. Without the Angel of Jehovah, Jehovah had no way to go with them in their midst. For Jehovah to be with His people, there was the need of the Angel. Today without Christ, God has no way to be with us. Furthermore, the cloud and the pillar of cloud were necessary for God to come to His people and stay with them. Similarly, today the Spirit, the pneumatic Christ, enables God to come to us and stay with us so that we may enjoy His presence. The crucified Christ as the cleft rock is our standing and hiding before the manifested God. Hymns, #298 says, "On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand; / All other ground is sinking sand." Hymns, #206 says, "I stand upon His merit; / I know no other stand." Because the crucified Christ, Christ in His death, is our standing and our hiding, we can communicate with and contact God. The merciful and governmental God and the rebellious, stiff-necked people can be brought together only through the Angel, the pillar of cloud, the cleft rock, and the hand of Jehovah, which typify Christ as God's sent One, the pneumatic Christ, Christ in His death, and Christ as the covering in God's manifestation. Because of the operation of the Trinity in this way, we now enjoy God's continual presence. Moreover, He manifests Himself to us, and we see Him in a hidden way. We have a standing and a hiding, a covering. This all-inclusive care of the Divine Trinity is for the purpose of His remaining with us to dispense Himself for our enjoyment.
