Glorious Things

The glorious things of our God are spoken to us in His Word, in nature, in our hearts and spirit. It is truly joy unspeakable to know, love and serve our Sovereign Creator God who has by His love, grace and mercy, given us life eternal.  Worship Him, the author of all Glorious Things!

Glorious things of thee are spoken,
 Zion, city of our God.
 God, whose word cannot be broken,
 formed thee for a blest abode.
 On the rock of ages founded,
 what can shake thy sure repose?
 With salvation’s walls surrounded,
 thou may’st smile at all thy foes.

 Round each habitation hovering,
 see the cloud and fire appear
 for a glory and a covering,
 showing that the Lord in near.
 Thus deriving from their banner
 light by night and shade by day,
 safe they feed upon the manna
 which God gives them when they pray.

 See, the streams of living waters,
 springing from eternal love,
 well supply thy sons and daughters
 and all fear of want remove.
 Who can faint while such a river
 ever flows, their thirst to_assuage?
 Grace, so like the Lord the giver,
 never fails from age to age.
