Look at the King in his beauty!

Erik Raymond —  November 24, 2009

“Your eyes will see the King in his beauty, they will see a land that stretches afar.” 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.


his glorious character;

his infinite mercy;

his unparalleled condescension,

and his boundless love.

There is enough in Jesus to employ the soul in

rapturous meditation through 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!

(David Harsha, “Wanderings of a Pilgrim”)
