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)
