PRAISE FOR THE GOSPEL




Behold, the morning sun
Begins his glorious way;
His beams through all the nations run,
And life and light convey.


But where the Gospel comes
It spreads diviner light;
It calls dead sinners from their tombs,
And gives the blind their sight.


Thy laws are just and pure,
Thy truth without deceit;
Thy promises for ever sure,
And thy rewards are great.


My gracious God, how plain
Are thy directions given!
O may I never read in vain,
But find the path to heaven!


I hear thy word with love,
And I would fain obey:
Send thy good Spirit from above
To guide me, lest I stray.


O who can ever find
The errors of his ways?
Yet with a bold, presumptuous mind
I would not dare transgress.


Warn me of every sin,
Forgive my secret faults,
And cleanse this guilty soul of mine,
Whose crimes exceed my thoughts.


While with my heart and tongue
I spread thy praise abroad,
Accept the worship and the song,
My Saviour and my God.


---Alternative verses---


Behold, the morning sun
Begins his glorious way;
His beams through all the nations run,
And light and liife convey.


Warn us of secret faults;
oh! make us pure within;
And guard our souls from all assaults
And all the snares of sin.


But when the gospel comes,
It spreads diviner light,
It calls dead sinners from their tombs,
And gives the blind their sight.


Our hearts to thee belong,
We spread thy praise abroad;
Accept the worship and the song
Our Saviour and our God.


How perfect is thy word!
And all thy judgements just!
For ever sure thy promise, Lord,
And we securely trust.


How perfect is thy word!
And all thy judgements just!
For ever sure thy promise, Lord,
And men securely trust.
