Hebrews_4-12: For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart

The Spirit breathes upon the Word,

And brings the truth to sight;

Precepts and promises afford,

A sanctifying light.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A 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

The gracious light and heat:

Its truths upon the nations rise

They rise, but never set.

 

 

 

Let everlasting thanks be Thine

For such a bright display,

As makes a world of darkness shine

With beams of heavenly day.

 

 

 

 

 

 

My soul rejoices to pursue

The steps of Him I love,

Till glory breaks upon my view

In brighter worlds above.
