Here are a few excerpt stanzas from the author's poem:
The King in His Beauty
by Sylvia Lewis
Mine eyes shall gladly behold
My adoring eyes shall soon see
O blessed Yeshua-Jesus!
In His Beauteous Divinity
That King in splendorous Glory
That Great King in Heavenly realms
O what joys my heart can tell…
