« Prev Lord, open mine eyes to behold Next »

Morgan Rhys


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.
