The bosom of His eternal Love!
(Anne Dutton's Letters on Spiritual Subjects)
Oh, what heart can conceive, or tongue express,
a thousandth part of that joy and glory which He
has reserved for His people in the world to come,
when He will bid them enter into His own joy, and
He Himself will be their everlasting light and their
glory! Oh, then we shall have the light of life, of
glory-life, in such manner and measure as far
surpasses all our present thought!
Come, lie down by faith, in the bosom of His eternal
Love! It is a sweet, soft bed, that will delight and
refresh you exceedingly! Here is a basin of heavenly
wine, or rather a sea of boundless bliss! Drink your
fill, bathe your soul in pleasures---and shout the
glories, the fullness, the praises of the strong
Jehovah amid all your felt emptiness, weakness,
and imperfections! So shall you be exceeding joyful
and fruitful, and your obedience highly pleasing to
your God and Father, in the Son of His love.
