(From “Wanderings of a Pilgrim”)
“Your eyes will see the King in his beauty, they will see a land that stretches afar.” Isaiah 33:17
Contemplate your blessed Redeemer,
seated on his great white throne,
encircled with heavenly glory.
Look at the King in his beauty!
It is the sight of a glorified Savior that
will make the heaven of the believer.
Endeavor now, by the eye of faith,
to behold the Lord Jesus in all his
matchless beauty and excellence.
his glorious character;
his infinite mercy;
his unparalleled condescension,
and his boundless love.
There is enough in Jesus to employ the soul in
rapturous meditation through a vast eternity!
His excellence, his goodness, and
his love can never be fathomed!
O keep your eye fixed on this adorable Savior,
while you sojourn in this valley of tears; and
in a little while you shall see him as he is; face
to face, and ascribe to him unceasing praise!
