Verse 1
The Spirit breathes upon the word,
And brings the truth to light
Precepts and promises afford
A sanctifying light.

Verse 2
A glory gilds the sacred page,
Majestic, like the sun:
It gives a light to every age;
It gives, but borrows none.

Verse 3
The hand that gave it still supplies
The gracious light and heat;
His truths upon the nations rise;
They rise, but never set.
