2 Here sinners of a humble frame               4 Here faith reveals to mortal eyes
May taste His grace, and learn His name;    A brighter world beyond the skies;
May read, in characters of blood,                 Here shines the light which guides our way
The wisdom, power, and grace of God.        From earth to realms of endless day.
13 The prisoner here may break his chains;    5 O grant us grace, Almighty Lord,
The weary rest from all his pains;              To read and mark Thy holy word;
The captive feel his bondage cease;              Its truths with meekness to receive,
[The mourner find the way of peace.            And by its holy precepts live.
Verses i, 2, Rev. Benjamin Beddome, 1787 Verses 3, 4, 5, Rev. Thomas Cotterill, 1819
2  Sun, moon, and stars convey Thy praise Round the whole earth, and never stand; %6 when Thy truth began its race,
It touched and glanced on every land.
3  Nor shall Thy spreading gospel rest Till through the world Thy truth has run;
Will Christ has all the nations blest .What see the light, or feel the sun.
4  Great Sun of Righteousness, arise; Bless the dark world with heavenly light: Thy gospel makes the simple wise,
Thy laws are pure, Thy judgments right.
5  Thy noblest wonders here we view In souls renewed, and sins forgiven: Lord, cleanse my sins, my soul renew, And make Thy word my guide to heaven.
Rev. Isaac Watts, 1719
