162. What Rich, Eternal Bursts of Praise

8,8,6.
by G.W. Frazer
1
What rich, eternal bursts of praise
 
Shall fill yon courts through endless days,
 
When time shall cease to be!
 
Round and around the notes shall swell,
 
As each redeemed one joins to tell
 
Thy love, so vast and free.
Revelation 5:8-13; Revelation 10:6; Ephesians 3:18-19
2
Each shall the Saviour's likeness bear,
 
A royal crown each brow shall wear,
 
With robes unsullied white.
 
The everlasting song shall be,
 
To Thee, O Lamb of God, to Thee,
 
Mid scenes of purest light.
1 John 3:2; Revelation 4:4; Revelation 3:4
3
Our joy unhindered then with Thee,
 
Our eyes undimmed Thy glory see,
 
Whilst worthy praise we give.
 
Through that eternal, cloudless day,
 
Our burning hearts with rapture say
 
He died that we might live.
1 Corinthians 13:12; 1 Thessalonians 5:10
“And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odors, which are the prayers of saints. And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation. And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth. And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands. Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honor, and glory, and blessing. And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honor, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.” (Revelation 5:8-13)
“And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer.” (Revelation 10:6)
“May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height. And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.” (Ephesians 3:18-19)
“Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.” (1 John 3:2)
“And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold.” (Revelation 4:4)
“Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy.” (Revelation 3:4)
“For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.” (1 Corinthians 13:12)
“Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.” (1 Thessalonians 5:10)
