Hymn/Song Information

FORE RUNNER




Far, far beyond these lower skies,
Up to the glories all his own;
Where we by faith lift up our eyes,
There Jesus our forerunner's gone.


Amidst the shining hosts above.
Where his blest smile new pleasure gives,
Where all is wonder, joy, and love,
There Jesus, our forerunner, lives.


High on his throne of heavenly light,
Eternal glory he sustains;
Whilst saints and angels bless the sight;
There Jesus, our forerunner, reigns.


There, while his course he ever runs,
Glory his radiant crown entwines;
And brighter than ten thousand suns,
There Jesus, our forerunner, shines.


He lives salvation to impart,
From sin and satan's cursed wiles;
With love eternal in his breast;
There Jesus, our forerunner, smiles.


Before his heavenly Father's face,
For ev'ry saint he intercedes;
And with infallible success,
There Jesus, our forerunner, pleads.


But O! 'tis this completes the whole,
And all its bliss and glory proves,
That, while eternal ages roll,
There Jesus, our forerunner, loves.


We shall, when we in heaven appear,
His praises sing, his wonders tell;
And with our great forerunner there,
Forever and forever dwell.
