HOLY SCRIPTURES
78
2  I'll read the histories of Thy love,
And keep Thy laws in sight; While through the promises I rove With ever fresh delight.
3  'Tis a broad land of wealth unknown,
Where springs of life arise,
Seeds of immortal bliss are sown, And hidden glory lies.
4 The best relief that mourners have: It makes our sorrows blest; Our fairest hope beyond the grave, And our eternal rest.
Rev. Isaac Watts, 1719
79
2  Its light, descending from above,
Our gloomy world to cheer,
Displays a Saviour's boundless love,
And brings His glories near.
3  It shows to man his wandering ways,
And where his feet have trod; And brings to view the matchless grace Of a forgiving God.
r
4  It sweetly cheers our drooping hearts,
In this dark vale of tears; Life, light, and joy it still imparts, And quells our rising fears.
5  This lamp, through all the tedious night
Of life, shall guide our way, Till we behold the clearer light Of an eternal day.
Rev. John Fawcett, 1782
