What glory gilds the sacred page Majestic like the




What 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
His 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 the world of darkness shine
With beams of heavenly day.


My soul rejoices to pursue
The paths of truth and love,
Till glory breaks upon my view
In brighter worlds above.


---Alternative verses---


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


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