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.
