THE HOLY SCRIPTURES.
1 HAIL, sacred truth! whose piercing rays
Dispel the shades of night; Diffusing o'er the mental world,
The healing beams of light. 2 Jesus, thy word, with friendly aid,
Restores our wandering feet;, Converts the sorrows of the mind
To joys divinely sweet.
In all their radiant blaze;
C. M. 2
The Bible the Light of the World,
By inspiration given!
To guide our souls to heaven.
In this dark vale of tears;
And quells our rising fears. 3 This lamp, through all the tedious night Of life, shall guide our way;
Till we behold the clearer light
C. M. 3
The Bible suited to the Wants of Mankind, FATHER of mercies, in thy word
What endless glory shines ! Forever be thy name adored
For these celestial lines.
Exhaustless riches find;
And lasting as the mind.
To cheer the fainting mind; And thirsty souls receive supplies,
And sweet refreshment find. 4 Here the Redeemer's welcome voice
Spreads heavenly peace around; And life, and everlasting joys
Attend the blissful sound.
My ever dear delight,
And still increasing light.
Be thou forever near;
And view my Saviour there. 4
I come to thee, my Lord;
But in thy holy word,
