A similar theme is handled in these glowing verses:
Lord, open mine eyes to behold
The worth of Thy wondrous decree:
Far better than silver and gold,
The law of Thy mouth is to me:
The fire shall consume all below,
But Thou art the same, and Thy plan--
'Tis life everlasting to know
My Saviour as God and as Man.
O wonder of infinite cost!
The way that He took in His grace,
To rescue a man that was lost,
By dying Himself in His place!
He conquered the serpent's despite,
And stood there alone as my King
He leadeth us now in His might--
Let those on the Rock shout and sing.
The Mighty One has overcome,
His foes in confusion retire;
And Zion is on its way home
In terrible chariots of fire;
The saints and the angels unite,
A white-shining numberless throng,
To bear through the realms of the light,
To Him the all-conquering song.
