 When this passing world is done



"When this passing world is done,
When has sunk yon glaring sun,
When we stand with Christ in glory,
Looking o’er life’s finished story,
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.

- Robert M. McCheyne (1813-1843)
lived 30 years.

Beautiful.
This seems so near at times, and yet so far.

 Re: When this passing world is done

Remarkable words that would be beneficial to read before I leave my apartment each day, and to use as a mirror held up to my day when returning home for the evening!

They're a great reminder to live and do all for Christ!

 Re: When this passing world is done

This is one of my favorite hymn also, we would sing verse 1; 3 ;4 and 6 only at our breaking of bread service.
I hope you don’t mind me passing on some more information about R.M McChenyne beautiful Hymn which I am told was a poem called “I am a Debtor.”

The verses of this hymn are actually an abbreviation of McChenyne's 1837 Poem called "I am Debtor."

The entire beautiful poem is as follows:

When this passing world is done,
When has sunk yon glaring sun,
When we stand with Christ in glory,
Looking o'er life's finished story,
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 thunder to the ear,
Loud as many water's 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.

When in flowery paths I tread,
Oft by sin I'm captive led;
Oft I fall - but still arise -
The Spirit comes - the tempter flies;
Blessed Spirit! bid me show
Weary sinners all I owe.

Oft the nights of sorrow reign -
Weeping, sickness, sighing, pain;
But a night Thine anger burns -
Morning comes and joy returns;
God of comforts! bid me show
To Thy poor, how much I owe.

 Re:

I had a fellow who tunes pipe organs tell me once that it was hard to make recordings from pipe organs. Check out this youtube video though. I think the sound is great. What do you all think? I love to hear the great hymns of praise played on the organ at church, but not too many churches have them.
