Hello there,
I found this hymn today, which, following the celebrations now passing, of the Saviour's first advent, looks with anticipation to the glory of His second advent:-

'O, what a bright and blessed world
This groaning earth of ours will be,
When from its throne the tempter hurled,
Shall leave it all, O Lord, to Thee!

But brighter far that world above
Where we, as we are known, shall know;
And, in the sweet embrace of love,
Reign o'er this ransomed earth below.

O, blessed Lord! with longing eyes,
That blissful hour we wait to see;
While every worm or leaf that dies
Tells of the curse, and calls for Thee.

Come, Saviour! then, o'er all below
Shine brightly from Thy throne above;
Bid heaven and earth Thy glory know,
And all creation feel Thy love."

"Even so; Come, Lord Jesus"

I came across the following verses of a hymn, today, I don't know the author, but praise God for them:-

'Saviour, where'er Thy people meet,
There they behold Thy mercy seat;
Where'er they seek Thee, Thou art found,
And every place is hallowed ground.

For Thou, within no walls confined,
Inhabitest the humble mind,
Such ever bring Thee where they come
And going, take Thee to their home.

Praise God!
