    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.
