higher glories

Turn away thine eyes, for they have overcome me,
The beauty of thy face, no heart can understand,
Things the mind of man could never hope to fashion,
These are the glorious workings of our Creator’s hand:
Yet greater wonders ever shine,
From that face of Loveliness Divine.
The sun in it’s glory outshineth all the heavens,
The fairest of the flowers are but shining back his rays;
He sendeth for his splendor, dispersing every shadow
The moon that seemeth lovely doth but borrow from his gaze
But greater glories adorn the face
Of Him Who hung the sun in place.
A father in his children findeth heart all taken up,
And to their hungry pleadings, he giveth not a stone,
A bridegroom, long preparing, when joined to his beloved,
Keeps her in calm assurance, that she is ne’er alone:
But stronger love doth burn within,
The One who drew our souls to Him

  • Quote of the Day

    “We love the old saints, missionaries, martyrs, and reformers. Our Luthers, Bunyans, Wesleys and Asburys, etc... We will write their biographies, reverence their memories, frame their epitaphs, and build their monuments. We will do anything except imitate them. We cherish the last drop of their blood, but watch carefully over the first drop of our own.”
    - A. W. Tozer
