The Joy Of The Angels

“If two angels were to receive at the same moment a commission from God, one to go down and rule earth’s grandest empire, the other to go and sweep the streets of its meanest village, it would be a matter of entire indifference to each which service fell to his lot, the post of ruler or the post of scavenger; for the joy of the angels lies only in obedience to God’s will.”

~ E.M. Bounds (1835-1913)

Give Thee Thanks

With heavenly hosts,
and angelic ranks,
We lift our hearts,
and give Thee thanks.

Until that bright,
and glorious day,
when temporal life,
finds eternal array,

When over we cross,
Jordan's river banks,
still we praise,
and give Thee thanks.
