Hymn/Song Information

The icy chains that bound the earth Are




The icy chains that bound the earth
Are now dissolv'd and gone;
Wak'd by the sun, the blooming spring
Puts its new liv'ry on.


Teeming with life, th' advancing sun
Protracts the falling day;
Grand light of heav'n! he seems to wish
To make a longer stay.


In clouds of gold behind him set,
Beyond the west he flies;
Short is his mighty course, and soon
He gilds the eastern skies.


My soul, in ev'ry scene admire
The wisdom and the pow'r;
Behold thy God in ev'ry plant,
In ev'ry op'ning flow'r.


Yet in his word, the word of grace,
He wrote his fairer name;
The wonders of redeeming love
My noblest song shall claim.


With warmest beams, thou God of grace,
Shine on this heart of mine;
Turn thou my winter into spring,
And be the glory thine!
