Bennetts End Reformed Baptist Church in Hemel Hempstead | The Holy Bible and The TV Guide
 
When this passing world is done,
When has sunk yon radiant sun,
When I stand with Christ on high,
Looking o’er life’s history,
Then, Lord, shall I fully know—
Not till then—how much I owe.

When I hear the wicked call,
On the rocks and hills to fall,
When I see them start and shrink
On the fiery deluge brink,
Then, Lord, shall I fully know—
Not till then—how much I owe.

When I stand before the throne,
Dressed in beauty not my own,
When I see Thee as Thou art,
Love Thee with unsinning heart,
Then Lord, shall I fully know—
Not till then—how much I owe.

When the praise of Heav’n I hear,
Loud as thunders to the ear,
Loud as many waters’ noise,
Sweet as harp’s melodious voice,
Then, Lord, shall I fully know—
Not till then—how much I owe.

Even on earth, as through a glass
Darkly, let Thy glory pass,
Make forgiveness feel so sweet,
Make Thy Spirit’s help so meet,
Even on earth, Lord, make me know
Something of how much I owe.

Chosen not for good in me,
Wakened up from wrath to flee,
Hidden in the Saviour's side,
By the Spirit sanctified,
Teach me, Lord, on earth to show,
By my love, how much I owe.

Oft I walk beneath the cloud,
Dark, as midnight’s gloomy shroud;
But, when fear is at the height,
Jesus comes, and all is light;
Blessed Jesus! bid me show
Doubting saints how much I owe.

Robert Murray McCheyne, is one of the greatest preachers of all time. He is a wonderful example of what God calls us to be, holy and committed to him in all things. Robert McCheyne enjoyed the blessing of God because he enjoyed the holiness of God.

Son of Adam McCheyne, Robert was ed­u­cat­ed at Ed­in­burgh Un­i­ver­si­ty. In 1835, he be­came As­sist­ant at Lam­bert (near Stirl­ing). In 1836, he was or­dained Min­is­ter of St. Peter’s Es­tab­lished Church in Dun­dee. In 1839, he went to Pal­es­tine as one of the Mis­sion of En­quiry to the Jews from the Church of Scot­land. His hymns, a few of which he wrote in Pal­es­tine, ap­peared post­hu­mous­ly in:

  • Songs of Zion to Cheer and Guide Pilgrims on Their Way to the New Jerusalem (Dundee, Scotland; W. Middleton, 1843)
