When I look up to heaven

When I look up to heaven

Published in 3 hymnals

Full Text

1 When I look up to Heaven,
And there my Jesus view;
When faith to me is given,
Those wonders to pursue:
I cry out O amazing,
Astonish'd at the sight;
And ever would be gazing,
In raptures of delight.

2 There on a throne most glorious,
With sweet delight I see,
Exalted and victorious,
The Man that died for me;
Co-equal and eternal,
He'll with the Father reign;
And all his foes infernal
Against him rage in vain.

3 He shines through Heav'ns glad regions
With such transcendant light,
All the celestial legions,
Are daz'led a the sight;
With faces veil'd before him,
Bright Cherubs lowly fall,
And joyfully adore him,
As Sovereign Lord of all.

4 The saints with joy and gladness,
Inveil'd before him stand,
Forever freed from sadness,
With victory in their hands;
In spotless robes adorned
Crowns on their heads they wear,
Tho' once by sinner scorned
Now like their Lord appear.

5 They join their greatful voices,
To praise the sacred Three,
All Heaven around rejoices,
In sweetest harmony;
To God the glorious Father,
The Spirit and the Son,
By all his works together,
Be equal honour done.
