Representative Text

1 Rise, my Soul! behold ‘tis Jesus,
Jesus fills Thy wond’ring eyes;
See Him now in glory seated,
Where thy sins no more can rise.

All Thy sins were laid upon Him,
Jesus bore them on the tree;
God, who knew them, laid them on Him,
And, believing, thou art free.

2 There in righteousness transcendent,
Lo! He doth in Heav’n appear,
Shows the blood of His atonement
As thy title to be there. [Refrain]

3 God now brings thee to His dwelling,
Spreads for thee His feast divine,
Bids thee welcome, ever telling
What a portion there is thine. [Refrain]

4 In that circle of God’s favor,
Circle of the Father’s love,
All is rest, and rest forever,
All is perfectness above. [Refrain]

5 Blessed, glorious word “forever”—
Yes, “forever” is the word;
Nothing can the ransomed sever,
Naught divide them from the Lord. [Refrain]

Smith, Joseph Denham, was born at Romsey, Hants, circa 1816. After studying for some time in the Dublin Theological Institute, he entered the Congregational Ministry in 1840. In 1849 he became Pastor of the Congregational Church at Kingstown, near Dublin, and in 1863 began a series of services at Merrion Hall, Dublin, and subsequently at other places. His Evangelistic work in England and Ireland is well known. In connection therewith he has published a large number of tracts, pamphlets, and small books. One of these, Times of Refreshing illustrated in the Present Revival of Religion, 1860, included several of his hymns which were sung during that time at his special services at Kingstown. He also published Seven Hymns for the Present Time,… Go to person page >
