Hymn/Song Information

Twas by an order from the Lord The ancient prophet




'Twas by an order from the Lord
The ancient prophets spoke his word;
His Spirit did their tongues inspire,
And warm their hearts with heavenly fire.


The works and wonders
which they wrought
Confirmed the messages they brought;
The prophet's pen succeeds his breath,
To save the holy words from death.


Great God, mine eyes with pleasure look
On the dear volume of thy book;
There my Redeemer's face I see,
And read his name who died for me.


Let the false raptures of the mind
Be lost, and vanish in the wind;
Here I can fix my hope secure;
This is thy word, and must endure.
