E Bevan, Tr

FROM the glory and the gladness,

From His secret place;

From the rapture of His presence

From His radiant face:

Christ, the Son of God, hath sent me

Through the midnight lands;

Mine the mighty ordination

Of the pierced hands.

Mine the message grand and glorious

Strange unsealed surprise;

That the goal is God’s Beloved,

Christ in Paradise.

Glory to His name!

Glory to His name!

Yes, the goal is God’s Beloved,

Christ in Paradise.


Hear me, weary men and women,

Sinners dead in sin;

I am come from heaven to tell you

Of the love within;

Not alone of God’s great pathway

Leading up to heaven;

Not alone how you may enter

Stainless and forgiven.


But I tell you I have seen Him,

God’s beloved Son,

From His lips have learnt the mystery,

He and His are one.

There, as knit into the body

Every joint and limb,

We, His ransomed, His beloved,

We are one with Him.
