Christ My Song - 1219

Boundless glory, Lord, be thine!
(Thomas Kelly/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Boundless glory, Lord, be thine!

"To turn them from darkness to light." (Acts 26,18)

1. Boundless glory, Lord, be thine!
  Thou hast made the darkness shine;
thou hast sent a cheering ray;
  thou hast turned our night to day.

2. Hither is the Gospel come;
  'tis "the pow'r of God" to some;
O let such in praise unite
  to the Lord who gives them light.

3. Darkness long involved us round,
  till we knew "the joyful sound";
then our darkness fled away,
  chased by truth's celestial ray.

4. They are blessed, and none beside,
  they who in the truth abide;
clear the light that marks their way,
  leading to eternal day.

5. Ye who walk this heav'nly road,
  hasting to the saints' abode,
see how bright it shines above!
  There appears the God of love.

6. Soon your stronger sight will bear
  to behold that glory near;
light that now would but destroy,
  then will yield sublimest joy.

Thomas Kelly, Hymns on various passages of Scripture, ca. 1853, Hymn 347.
