-The King In His Beauty

Picture Frame The King In His Beauty

Your eyes will see the King in His beauty;
They will see the land that is very far off.

Isaiah 33:17

Thrice-holy God we humbly dare

To enter through the veil

For He has gone to glory where

A welcome never fails.

Our spirits rise in raptured flight

To tread eternal courts of light.

How bright that radiant One and fair

Enwreathed with anadems,

How nobly does that crowned Head wear

The many diadems,

As angels cast their crowns before

The dazzling feet of Christ the Lord!

But who can nobler paeans raise

Than those He came to save,

Or who know more ecstatic praise

Than those whom He forgave?

Who loves the Bridegroom like the Bride

For whom the Lord was crucified?

What clouds of glory bright adorn

His manly loveliness!

More beautiful than rosy dawn

The Sun of Righteousness

Outshines the massed, cherubic bands

With flaming swords in weaponed hands.

Clear as the noonday firmament

His crystal aspect shines,

His face of light magnificent

Is kindly and benign.

He waits His healing wings to spread

Around the saints for whom He bled.

He sits enthroned in steadfast power

In majesty serene,

While peace as in the sunset hour

Pervades the saintly scene.

His scepter raised in loving grace

He welcomes those who seek His face.

Then let us haste to keep the feast

In grateful memory,

Of Him whose ardor never ceased

Though proved at Calvary.

Rise then and bless the One who died

Until He comes to claim His bride!

By Tom Summerhill

Who is this King of glory?
The Lord of hosts,
He is the King of glory. Selah.

Psalm 24:10
