(David Harsha, 1827-1895)
“Your eyes will see the King in His beauty!” Isaiah 33:17
Contemplate your blessed Redeemer, seated on His great white throne, encircled with heavenly glory. Look at the King in His beauty! It is the sight of a glorified Savior, that will make the Heaven of the believer.
Endeavor now, by the eye of faith, to behold the Lord Jesus in all His matchless beauty and excellence. Contemplate . . .
His glorious character,
His infinite mercy,
and unparalleled condescension,
and His boundless love!
There is enough in Jesus to employ the soul in rapturous meditation throughout a vast eternity! His excellence, His goodness, and His love can never be fathomed!
O keep your eye fixed on this adorable Savior, while you sojourn in this valley of tears; and in a little while you shall see Him as He is: face to face, and ascribe to Him unceasing praise!
“Yes, He is altogether lovely. This is my Beloved, and this is my Friend!” Song of Songs 5:16

What a source of joy you have in Jehovah
amid the joyless, sorrowful path you may tread.
There is everything in Him to make you
happy. Everything to win your confidence,
to inspire your love, to awaken your joy.
Creatures shall fail,
resources shall fail,
hopes shall fail, but
God will never fail you!
His love is as changeless,
and His power is as omnipotent,
His faithfulness is as firm,
And His resources are as boundless,
as infinite as His being.
