2  A glory gilds the sacred page,
Majestic, like the sun: It gives a light to every age; It gives, but borrows none.
3   The hand that gave it still supplies
The gracious light and heat: His truths upon the nations rise; They rise, but never set.
4   Let everlasting thanks be Thine
For such a bright display As makes a world of darkness shine With beams of heavenly day.
5   My soul rejoices to pursue
The steps of Him I love, Till glory breaks upon my view
In brighter worlds above.
William Cowphr, 1779
2   Book of love! in accents tender
Speaking unto such as we; May it lead us, Lord, to render All, all to Thee.
3  Book of hope! the spirit, sighing,
Sweetest comfort finds in thee,
As it hears the Saviour crying, " Come, come to me!"
4 Book of life, when we, reposing, Bid farewell to friends we love, Give us, for the life then closing, Life, life above.
Thomas Mackbllak, 1843
