The Bosom Of The Father

 •  1 min. read  •  grade level: 6
The bosom of the Father was an eternal habitation, enjoyed by the Son, in the ineffable delight of the Father-"the hiding-place of love," as one has called it, "of inexpressible love which is beyond glory; for glory may be revealed, this cannot.”
The soul may have remained unexercised about such thoughts as these, but the saints cannot admit their denial.
"Son of God! Thy Father's bosom
Ever was Thy dwelling-place;
His delight, in Him rejoicing,
One with Him in power and grace;

O what wondrous love and mercy!
Thou didst lay Thy glory by,
And for us didst come from heaven
As the Lamb of God to die.
