Christ the beginning and Christ the end
“The Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.”
“Able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy”
This Hath He done, and shall we not adore Him?
This shall He do, and can we still despair?
Come, let us quickly fling ourselves before Him,
Cast at His feet the burden of our care.
Flash from our eyes the glow of our thanksgiving,
Glad and regretful, confident and calm,
Then through all life and what is after living,
Thrill to the tireless music of a psalm.
Yea, thro’ life, thro’ death, thro’ sorrow and thro’ sinning
He shall suffice us, for He hath sufficed:
Christ is the end, for Christ is the beginning,
Christ the beginning, for the end is Christ.
F. W. H. Meyers - 1911
