-Gospel Glory

Gospel Glory

Radiant rays of gospel glory:
See them in the Savior’s face!
Streaming, gleaming, broadly beaming,
Shedding light in every place.

You who dwell in depths of darkness,
Daylight dawns and starts to shine,
Glowing, growing, starkly showing
Sinful flesh and truth divine.

In that blinding blaze the blackness
Of your soul can feign no smile.
Stressing, pressing, sore distressing,
Sin now shows so cruel and vile.

Do not love the night of slumber;
Let the Lord of light shine in.
Living, giving, all-forgiving,
He alone can save and clean.

For that light of God most holy
Tells a tale of glorious grace.
Caring, bearing sins so glaring,
Willingly He takes our place.

See salvation’s splashing splendor!
View those vivid, vibrant tones!
Dying, buying, justifying,
Jesus justly claims His own.

In the Savior’s resurrection
God displays His dazzling might,
Seeing, freeing, guaranteeing
Life with Christ as saints in light.

In our hearts the Lord has entered,
Sweetly lavished lustrous love,
Welling, swelling, ever telling
Of that perfect light above.

Now we walk in warmth and wonder;
His dear presence is our light.
Hearing, cheering, hindrance-clearing,
He will steer our steps aright.

Then one day in greater grandeur
We’ll behold His brilliant hues,
Gazing, praising – grace amazing –
Gladly glimpsing glorious views.

— Edward Morris

“The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. For we do not preach ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who said, ‘Let light shine out of darkness,’ made His light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.”– 2 Corinthians 4:4-6 NIV
