A glory guilds the sacred page Majestic like the




A glory guilds the sacred page,
Majestic like the sun;
It gives a light to every age;
It gives, but borrows none.


The Spirit breathes upon the Word
And brings the truth to sight;
Precepts and promises afford
A sanctifying light.


The hand that gave it still supplies
The gracious light and heat;
His truth upon the nations rise;
They rise, but never set.


Let everlasting thanks be Thine
For such a bright display
That makes a world of darkness shine
With beams of heavenly day.


My soul rejoices to pursue
The steps of Him I love,
Till glory breaks upon my view
In brighter worlds above.


---Alternative verses---


Let everlasting thanks be Thine
For such a bright display
As makes a world of darkness shine
With beams of heavenly day.
