179. Brightness of the eternal glory
Brightness of th’eternal glory
Shall Thy praise unuttered lie ?
Who would hush the heav’nsent story
Of the Lamb who came to die ?
Came from Godhead's fullest glory
Down to Calv’ry's depth of woe ;
Now on high, we bow before Thee ;
Streams of praises ceaseless flow !
Sing His blest triumphant rising;
Sing Him on the Father's throne ;
Sing — till heav’n and earth surprising,
Reigns the Nazarene alone.
