106. O Lord! 'Tis Joy to Look Above

by J.G. Deck
O Lord! 'tis joy to look above,
And see Thee on the throne,
To search the heights and depths of love
Which Thou to us hast shown.
Hebrews 1:3; Ephesians 3:17-19
To look beyond the long, dark night,
And hail the coming day,
When Thou, to all Thy saints in light,
Thy glories wilt display.
Romans 13:12; Colossians 1:12; John 17:24
And, oh! 'tis joy the path to trace
By Thee so meekly trod;
Learning of Thee to walk in grace,
And fellowship with God!
Matthew 11:29; 1 John 2:6; 1 Peter 2:21; 1 John 1:3
Joy to confess Thy blessèd name,
The virtue of Thy blood,
And to the wearied heart proclaim,
Behold the Lamb of God!
Romans 10:9; John 6:53-56; Matthew 11:28; John 1:29,36
