PERFECT LOVE




O glorious hope of perfect love!
It lifts me up to things above;
It bears on eaglesí wings.
It gives my ravished soul a taste,
And makes me for some moments feast
|:With Jesusí priests and kings.:|


Rejoicing now in earnest hope,
I stand, and from the mountain top
See all the lands below.
Rivers of milk and honey rise,
And all the fruits of paradise
|:In endless plenty grow.:|


A land of corn, and wine, and oil;
Favored with Godís peculiar smile,
With evíry blessing blest;
There dwells the Lord our Righteousness,
And keeps His own in perfect peace,
|:And everlasting rest.:|


Oh, that I might at once go up;
No more on this side of Jordan stop,
But now the land possess;
This moment end my legal years,
Sorrows and sins, and doubts and fears,
|:A howling wilderness!:|


Now, O my Joshua, bring me in!
Cast out Thy foes; the inward sin,
The stony heart remove;
The purchase of Thy death divide
And oh, with all the sactified,
|:Give me Thy perfect love:|
