1 All Fulness in the Lamb we view;
To look beside him, Loos:
He's only holy, just and true;
All else is Dung and Dross.

2 There dwells in him, as stain'd with Blood,
Jehovah's Pow'r and Name;
Greatly, from everlasting, God,
Yea, when the slaughter'd Lamb.

3 In him we know the holy Bride
All gather'd into one;
She looks out through his bleeding Side,
With all her Beauties on.

4 In him we see God's Heav'n, our Earth,
In perfect Peace agree:
This gives our one new Man its Birth,
And sets our Nature free.

5 His purg'd Humanity is ours,
And in it now we prove
A Seat above the heav'nly Pow'rs,
Fix'd in the Father's Love.

6 New Heav'ns, new Earth, we now possess;
Beulah, that blessed Field,
Where dwells, eternal Righteousness;
And God's our Sun and Shield.

7 Here's nothing hurtful to destroy;
The holy Mountain's here;
No Curse, nor Sin, us to annoy,
No Torment, Guilt, or Fear.

8 Of Jesus we will never cease
To sing as we began;
In whom there dwells, in perfect Peace,
God, and his darling Man.

However, Whitefield and Relly separated ways over Relly's seemingly universalist teaching that all humanity was elect (i.e. saved) when Christ took the punishment for all sin when he died. He also departed from both the Calvinists and Methodists by taking the doctrine of Justification further, in teaching that believers no longer sin and the Law's sole purpose is to condemn humanity and point them to Christ. He was the mentor of John Murray, the founder of the Universalist Ch… Go to person page >
