All is hush, the Battle's o'er

Representative Text

1 All is hush, the Battle's o'er!
Darkness reigns in purple Gore;
Each Intelligence intent
Trembling waits the great Event.
All are in Suspense -
Here I'll stay, nor wander hence,
'Till the Day-spring from on High
Speaks, who gain'd the Victory.

2 See the Gleam of Light appears!
Combats now my Hope and Fears;
Now the heav'nly Glory's come;
O! who starts from yonder Tomb,
Cover'd all with Blood,
Pale and wounded? 'Tis my God!
'Tis the Man who conqu'ring fell,
Dying, vanquish'd Death and Hell!

3 Heav'nly Laurels crown his Head!
Sin, and Hell, and Death are dead;
The old Serpent's Head is broke;
Heav'n by Violence is took
Hail! thou conq'ring Heart;
Thou my new Creation art:
Hail! my Flesh, and Bone, and Blood;
Hail! myself, redeem'd to God.

4 In in him, and he in me,
Perfect one in Mystery;
With him, here, and as he is,
Fully enter'd into Bliss:
There shall I abide
In my Nature purify'd:
Here I enter perfect Rest:
The Father's Praise, his King and Priest.

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 >
