I saw a new vision of Jesus

I thought that it was about time I posted another of my favourite hymns -

I saw a new vision of Jesus,
A view I’d not seen here before,
Beholding in glory so wondrous
With beauty I had to adore.
I stood on the shores of my weakness,
And gazed at the brink of such fear;
‘Twas then that I saw Him in newness,
Regarding Him fair and so dear.

My Saviour will never forsake me,
Unveiling His merciful face,
His presence and promise almighty,
Redeeming His loved ones by grace.
In shades of the valley’s dark terror,
Where hell and its horror hold sway,
My Jesus will reach out in power,
And save me by His only way.

For yonder a light shines eternal,
Which spreads through the valley of gloom;
Lord Jesus, resplendent and regal,
Drives fear far away from the tomb.
Our God is the end of the journey,
His pleasant and glorious domain;
For there are the children of mercy,
Who praise Him for Calvary’s pain.

W V Higham, 1926 -

Another poem from “Songs in the Night” by Michael R Abbott; used with permission.


When Christ shall come in majesty
And glory from on high,
And saints that sleep, with them that live,
Shall meet Him in the sky;
Then all the trials we have known
Shall seem to us as nought,
To know that we are saved from hell,
Our souls, by Christ, blood bought.

When on the fearful Judgment Day
We stand before God’s throne,
And plead to Him a righteousness,
The Saviour’s, not our own;
Then we shall know how great His love,
His mercy, and His grace,
That we may stand, our sins forgiven,
Before the Father’s face.

When in the New Jerusalem
We dwell with saints above,
Partakers of the blessed hope
And God’s eternal love;
Then every tear shall disappear
And every sorrow cease,
Safe in our heavenly home, at last,
We’ll know eternal peace.

Matthew 16 v 27-28.
