Hearing Ear, Happy Eye

"I have heard of Thee by the hearing of the ear: but now mine eye seeth Thee" (Job 42:5).  "We will not hide… His wonderful works that He hath done" (Psalm 78:4).  "The hearing ear, and the seeing eye, the LORD hath made even both of them" (Proverbs 20:12).  "The prophets have spoken:  ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into His glory?  And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, He expounded unto them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself" (Luke 24:25-27). 

The sound was sweet that met the ear,
And happy also was the eye,
When angels said, "He is not here!
Come, see the place where He did lie!"

We'll neither hide what He has done
Nor what He said that He would do. 
He kept His promises, each one,
And what His prophets said was true.

How clearly have the prophets spoken
Of Christ's affliction and His glory. 
There was no promise that was broken,
For Christ fulfilled redemption's story. 

The hearing ear is satisfied,
The eye is happy now to see,
O Lord, the truth we will not hide  
That You fulfilled in prophecy!
