A Fresh Jawbone — A Thought for This Lord’s Day

“…but we see Jesus, who [was] made some little inferior to angels on account of the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; so that by the grace of God he should taste death for every thing. For it became him, for whom [are] all things, and by whom [are] all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to make perfect the leader of their salvation through sufferings. For both he that sanctifies and those sanctified [are] all of one; for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren, saying, I will declare thy name to my brethren; in [the] midst of [the] assembly will I sing thy praises.”  (Heb. 2: 9- 12).

 

Glory, Lord, is Thine for ever,

Ever blest – Thou art the Son!

Great the glory Thou art given,

And the glory Thou hast won;

Great the glory and the splendour

Of the holy heav’nly place;

Wonderful the Godhead glory

Shining Saviour, in Thy face!

 

Lord of glory, Thou didst enter

This dark world of sin and woe;

Great Thy glory that was witnessed

By Thine own while here below.

Thou didst die, and now we praise Thee

In Thy glory, Lord, above;

For in death Thou hast declarèd

All the fulness of God’s love.

 

Yes, we see The crowned with glory,

Highest honour to Thee giv’n;

But Thy glory, all transcending,

Is the light that shines in heav’n.

Thou art greater, glorious Saviour,

Than the glory Thou hast won;

Thee – the great “I AM” – we worship,

Mighty God, Eternal One!
