1
From the palace of His glory,
 
From the home of joy and love,
 
Came the Lord Himself to seek us;
 
He would have us there above.
Psalm 45:8; John 16:28; John 17:5; Luke 19:10; John 14:3
2
There from that eternal brightness
 
Have His thoughts flowed forth in love;
 
He in His great love would have us
 
Ever there with Him above.
Hebrews 1:3; John 17:24
3
Trembling we had hoped for mercy—
 
Some lone place within His door:
 
But the crown, the throne, the mansion,
 
All were ready long before.
Luke 15:19; 2 Timothy 4:8
4
And in past and distant ages,
 
In those courts so bright and fair,
 
Ere we were, was He rejoicing,
 
All He won with us to share.
Proverbs 8:23-31
