“So shall we ever be with the Lord.”

I THESSALONIANS 4:17

Oh, thrilling thought!  that I should be
With Him who shed His blood for me,
        Where naught from Him shall sever;
Where I, with sainted hosts above,
O’ershadowed by the Holy Dove,
Shall banquet on His boundless love,
        And know those words, “For ever.”

Oh, thrilling thought!  to see Him shine,
For, evermore to call Him mine,
        With Heaven, all Heaven, before me!
To stand where angel myriads gaze,
Amid the illimitable blaze,
While He the Godhead full displays,
        To all the sons of glory!

William Henry Havergal (1793-1870)
Hon. Canon of Worcester Cathedral

  1. What a beautiful picture…it’s almost impossible to truly imagine what this will be like, but it is the hope we cling to. Because of this hope we can persevere to the end of this life with fruitful and enduring faith!
