O You who are King of kings and Lord of lords, we worship You.
“Before Jehovah’s awful throne We bow with sacred joy.”
We can truly say that we delight in God. There was a time when we feared You, O God, with the fear of bondage. Now we reverence, but we love as much as we reverence. The thought of Your Omnipresence was once horrible to us. We said: “Where shall we flee from His presence?” and it seemed to make hell itself more dreadful, because we heard a voice, “If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there.” But now, O Lord, we desire to find You. Our longing is to feel Thy presence, and it is the heaven of heavens that You are there. The sick bed is soft when You are there. The furnace of affliction grows cool when You are there, and the house of prayer when You are present is none other than the house of God, and it is the very gate of heaven. http://ow.ly/i/rdG0u
