THE HAPPY CHANGE




How blest thy creature is, O God,
When with a single eye,
He views the lustre of thy word,
The dayĖspring from on high!


Through all the storms that veil the skies,
And frown on earthly things;
The Sun of righteousness he eyes,
With healing on his wings.


Struck by that light, the human heart,
A barren soil no more;
Sends the sweet smell of grace abroad,
Where serpents lurked before.


The soul, a dreary province once
Of Satanís dark domain;
Feels a new empire formed within,
And owns a heavínly reign.


The glorious orb, whose golden beams,
The fruitful year control
Since first obedient to thy word,
He started from the goal;


Has cheered the nations, with the joys
His orient rays impart
But Jesus, ítis thy light alone,
Can shine upon the heart.
