Revelation welcomed.

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.
3 Oh! send thy light and truth abroad,

In all their radiant blaze;
And bid th' admiring world adore
The glories of thy grace.

C. M. 2

The Bible the Light of the World,
HOW precious is the book divine,

By inspiration given!
Bright as a lamp, its doctrines shine,

To guide our souls to heaven.
2 It sweetly cheers our drooping hearts,

In this dark vale of tears;
Life, light, and joy it still imparts,

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
Of an eternal day.

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.
2 Here may the wretched sons of want

Exhaustless riches find;
Riches, above what earth can grant,

And lasting as the mind.
3 Here springs of consolation rise,

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.
5 Oh! may these heavenly pages be

My ever dear delight,
And still new beauties may I see,

And still increasing light.
6 Divine Instructer, gracious Lord,

Be thou forever near;
Teach me to love thy sacred word,

And view my Saviour there. 4

C. M.
OPPRESSED with guilt, and full of fears,

I come to thee, my Lord;
While not a ray of hope appears,

But in thy holy word,
