The cream of all earthly joys!
From Spurgeon's, "Foretastes of the Heavenly Life"
This is the cream of all earthly joys-- to
that we ourselves are accepted in God's sight.
O! to feel that I, a guilty worm, am
now received in my Father's bosom!
That I, a lost prodigal, am now
feasting at his table with delight!
That I, who once heard the voice of his anger,
now listen to the notes of his love.
This is joy--this is joy worth worlds!
