Words: Charles Wesley
Music: "Brockham" by Jeremiah Clark


How glorious is the life above
Which in this ordinance we taste,
That fullness of celestial love,
That joy which shall for ever last!

That heavenly life in Christ concealed
These earthen vessels could not bear;
The part which now we find revealed
No tongue of angels can declare.

The light of life eternal darts
Into our souls a dazzling ray;
A drop of Heaven o'erflows our hearts,
And deluges the house of clay.

Sure pledge of ecstasies unknown
Shall this divine communion be:
The ray shall rise into a sun,
The drop shall swell into a sea.
