Anon. No Longer

We do so appreciate your fine magazine, and are blessed by the thoughtful articles and your solid stands.

On page 85 of the November 15, 2003 Standard Bearer, attributed to “Anon.,” is a verse of one of our favorite hymns. It was written by the Scottish pastor, Rev. Robert Murray McCheyne, in 1837. The verse you have quoted is verse 3 in most hymnals. The other verses are:

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.

(then your verse 3, followed by):

When the praise of heav’n I hear, loud as thunders to the ear,

loud as many waters’ noise, sweet as harp’s melodious voice,

then, Lord, shall I fully know, not till then, how much I owe.

Chosen not for good in me, wakened up from wrath to flee,

hidden in the Savior’s side, by the Spirit sanctified,

teach me, Lord, on earth to show, by my love, how much I owe.

Again, thank you for the blessed work you are doing.
