Hymns from the Past – Amidst Us Our Beloved Stands

I think this might be the first hymn I’ve written about that Charles Spurgeon wrote. I hope you enjoy this, beloved, and have a wonderful day of fellowship, growing in the grace and the knowledge of our Lord, Christ Jesus.

Amidst us our Beloved stands,
and bids us view His pierced hands;
points to the wounded feet and side,
blest emblems of the Crucified.

What food luxurious loads the board,
when, at His table, sits the Lord!
The cup how rich, the bread how sweet,
when Jesus deigns the guests to meet!

If now, with eyes defiled and dim,
we see the signs, but see not Him;
O may His love the scales displace,
and bid us see Him face to face!

Our former transports we recount,
when with Him in the holy mount:
these cause our souls to thirst anew
His marred but lovely face to view.
