I. THE HOLY SCRIPTURES.
(C. M.) 1 REAT God! with wonder and with praise
On all thy works I look;
Shine brightest in thy book.
Have much instruction given; But thy good word informs my soul
How I may soar to heaven. 3 The fields provide me food, and show
The goodness of the Lord; But fruits of life and glory grow
In thy most holy word. 4 Here are my choicest treasures hid;
Here my best comfort lies; Here my desires are satisfied,
And here my hopes arise. 5 Lord, make me understand thy law,
Show what my faults have been, And from thy Gospel let me draw
Pardon for all my sin.
To save my soul from hell;
Such heavenly wonders tell.
And take a fresh delight,
(C. M. 1 ATHER of mercies! in thy word
What endless glory shines!
For these celestial lines.
