NEARING THE GLORY.

W

HEN on brink of Jordan's river,

Israel's mighty legions stood;
Earth was silent, thinking never
What was in the mind of God;

How those legions,
Soon would penetrate that flood.
All the nations round were sleeping,

Sleeping on the verge of doom ;
Whilst the Lord in love was keeping
Watch o'er Israel-every one.

Oh! what wonders, Witnessed how He led them home!

Thus the Son will come from heaven,

When no stranger eye will see, Just as when the flood was riven By the ark in secrecy;

How we're gathered, Satan nor the world will see.

M

Israel stood by Jordan's river,

Ere the ark had led the way,
But believed the Lord would never,
Long their full deliverance stay :

Thus we're waiting
For our great redemption day.

Soon they saw the ark descending,

Nations still as very stone,
Jordan at its highest rending,
Leading to their Canaan home :

Thus with Jesus,
When He comes to take His own.

Just beyond the surging river,

Lo! their long-loved Canaan stood;
Israel never could be nearer,
Parted only by the flood.

Soon the glory!
Once is heard the trump of God.

Oh! what grace that ark delaying,

Ling'ring near the rolling flood;

In that respite God was staying
Darkest vengeance of His rod;

Thus the sinner,
Refuge finds through Jesus' blood.

We are in the waste remaining,

Till the day of grace is o'er ;
Sinners who believe obtaining
Refuge till the latest hour;

Jordan opened,
And we linger here no more.

On the one side is the desert,

Which for long the Church hath trod; On the other is our Canaan, Country of our Saviour God.

Come, Lord Jesus ! Come divide the swelling flood !
