And is it so I shall be like Thy Son




And is it so—I shall be like Thy Son?
Is this the grace
which He for me has won?
Father of glory
(thought beyond all thought!)—
In glory, to His own blest
likeness brought!


Oh, Jesus, Lord, who
loved me like to Thee?
Fruit of Thy work, with Thee, too,
there to see
Thy glory, Lord,
while endless ages roll,
Myself the prize
and travail of Thy soul.


Yet it must be: Thy love
had not its rest
Were Thy redeemed not
with Thee fully blest.
That love that gives not
as the world, but shares
All it possesses with its loved co-heirs.


Nor I alone; Thy loved
ones all, complete
In glory, round Thee there
with joy shall meet,
All like Thee, for Thy
glory like Thee, Lord,
Object supreme of all,
by all adored.


The heart is satisfied;
can ask no more
All thought of self
is now forever o’er:
Christ, its un-mingled Object,
fills the heart
In blest adoring love—
the endless part.


Father of mercies, in
Thy presence bright
All this shall be unfolded in the light;
Thy children all, with joy
Thy counsels know
Fulfilled; patient in hope,
while here below.
