Abounding Glory

"For if the ministry of death, in letters engraved on stone, came with glory, so that the sons of Israel could not look intently at the face of Moses because of the glory of his face, fading though it was, how will the ministry of the Spirit fail to be even more with glory? For if the ministry of condemnation has glory, much more will the ministry of righteousness abound in glory." -2 Corinthians 3:7-9

Abounding Glory

His face was shining with the light
Emitted from a bush of flames,
So all who saw the glory there
Saw God revealed, and were ashamed;

His hand was honored with a staff
That in God’s will became a snake
To be a witness of God’s power
And cry for mercy for our sake;

His feet had stepped on holy ground
And wandered in God’s company,
And marched to Pharaoh’s mighty throne
When in his heart he longed to flee;

His eyes had seen the back of God,
And saw the miracles performed;
He watched the sea be torn in two,
And plagues which made all Egypt mourn;

He witnessed so much glory then!
And yet, it cannot be compared
To all the glory found in Christ,
That’s ours to live in, ours to share!
