EXCELLENCIES OF SCRIPTURE




Blessed be the word, the fountain whence
Such streams of mercy flow!
A thousand sweets does it dispense,
A thousand joys bestow.


A compass ‘tis, by which we steer,
Safe to the port of heaven;
And none who seek direction here,
On rocks or sands are driven.


‘Tis amply stored, like Sharon’s field,
With herbs and fruits and flowers;
Abundant fragrance I will yield,
Enriched with heavenly showers.


It is a firmament, where rolls
Many a radiant star,
While Christ the sun illumes the whole,
And send his beams from far.


Oh thou who dost thy love reveal,
On us thy word bestow,
Grant we may all its influence feel,
Its saving virtues know.
