Light and Glory of the Sacred Page. C. M,
I What glory gilds the sacred page !
Majestic, like the sun,
It gives a light to every age ;
It gives, but borrows none.
2 The power that gave it still supplies
The gracious light and heat ;
Its truths upon the nations rise:
They rise, but never set.
3 Lord ! everlasting thanks be thine
For such a bright display,
As makes a world of darkness shine
With beams of heavenly day.
4 Our souls rejoicingly pursue
The steps of him we love,
Till glory break upon our view,
In brightei worlds above.
40 Be/ore .Sermon. C. M.
I Father of all. in whom alone
We live, and move, and breathe,
One bright, celestial ray dart down,
And cheer thy sons beneath.
2 While in thy word we search for thee,
(We -earch with trembling awe! )
and let us see
The wonders of thy law.
Now let our darkness comprehend
The light that shines so clear;
Now the revealing Spirit send,
And give us ears to hear.
Before us make thy goodness pass,
Which here by faith we know;
Let us in Jesus see thy face.
And die to all below.
Search the Scriptures. John v. 39. C. M»
The counsels of redeeming grace
The sacred leaves unfold;
And here the Saviour's lovely face
Our raptur'd eyes behold.
Here light de.-cending from above
Directs our doubtful feet;
Here promises of heavenly love
Our ardent wishes meet.
Our numerous griefs are here redress'd,
And all our wants supplied ;
Naught we can ask to make us bless'd
Is in this book denied.
For these inestimable gams.
That so enrich the mind,
O mav we search with eager pains,
Assured that we shall find !
