The Beauty of Christ's Church

The Church is beautiful. Resplendent glory is her face. And it's reflected in the diverse faces of every ethnicity, in communion, praising her one Lord.

Case in point: The Black Creole Reformer posts a youtube video of a Korean strings quartet, featuring a traditional Korean kayagum, playing the beautiful Welsh hymn, Here Is Love. That the truth of gospel and the beauty of the Savior might flow so freely through the breasts of all men demands praise.

Here's the video (HT: Scotty Williams)

Here are the lyrics. One of my favorites.
Here is love, vast as the ocean
Loving kindness as a flood
When the prince of life our ransom
Shed for us His precious blood
Who His love will not remember
Who can cease to sing His praise
He will never be forgotten
Throughout heaven’s eternal days

On the mount of crucifixion
Fountains opened deep and wide
From the floodgates of God’s mercy
Flowed a vast and gracious tide
Grace and love like mighty rivers
Flowed incessant from above
Heaven’s peace and perfect justice
Kissed a guilty world in love
