190. The Stream That From the Fountain Flows

by T. Kelly
The stream that from the fountain flows,
The fountain of eternal love,
Imparts its virtue as it goes,
A gift all other gifts above:
'Tis life and peace divinely given,
The love of God come down from heaven.
“In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.” (1 John 4:9)
How blessèd to enjoy the gift,
To taste of mercy here below;
In humble thankfulness to lift
Our hearts to Him whom now we know.
To know His love, how great it is,
To own and feel that we are His.
“If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious.” (1 Peter 2:3)
“And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.” (Ephesians 3:19)
“I am my beloved's, and my beloved is mine: he feedeth among the lilies.” (Song of Solomon 6:3)
“I am my beloved's, and his desire is toward me.” (Song of Solomon 7:10)
How blessèd is the hope of good,
The good that without measure is,
Of seeing Him who shed His blood
To save us and to make us His.
Redeemed by blood and saved by grace,
We look to see the Savior's face.
“Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ.” (Titus 2:13)
“For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.” (Matthew 26:28)
“This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.” (1 Timothy 1:15)
“But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.” (1 Peter 1:19)
“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God.” (Ephesians 2:8)
“And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.” (Revelation 22:4)
“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)
