THE LIGHT AND GLORY OF THE WORD




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


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


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


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


My soul rejoices to pursue
The steps of him I love;
Till glory break upon my view
In brighter worlds above.
