Hymn/Song Information

THE RICH AND FAITHFUL WORD




Fixed the covenant is, and certain,
Ratified by blood divine;
Saints, with glowing exultation,
Celebrate the kind design:
|: Sing of mercy, :|
As it now in Jesus shines.


Hence proceed unnumbered blessings
Pardon, peace and endless joy,
These with covenant-truth recorded,
Shall our daily thoughts employ:
|: Precious Bible, :|
Thus to bring a Saviour nigh.


All its promises and precepts,
All the doctrines it contains,
Are a rich and boundless treasure,
Far exceeding earthly gains:
|: Sacred volume, :|
Antidote to mortal pains.


Let thy light be still extended,
Reaching all the human race,
Let the mighty conquering Saviour,
Show the glories of his face:
|: Win the nations, :|
By his sovereign power and grace.
