I Will Look Upon Your Face in Righteousness: How Can I Envy Though My Enemies Have All Their Desire

Yes, Lord, whom shall we envy? You have given us all the real good there is, Your very self, that we shall see Christ just as He is - look upon Your face in righteousness - and that we shall be like Him, be conformed to His image - be satisfied with Your likeness when we awake. Yes, to live is Christ, to die is gain. There is no good anywhere but You, for You are the only good, a good more real than the ground upon which we stand or the air we breathe.
