Hymn #506: The Spirit breathes upon the word

Change to regular font

1. The Spirit breathes upon the word,
and brings the truth to sight;
precepts and promises afford
a sanctifying light.

2. The hand that gave it still supplies
the gracious light and heat;
God's truths up on the nations rise;
they rise, but never set.

3. Let everlasting thanks be thine
for such a bright display,
as makes a world of darkness shine
with beams of heavenly day.

4. My soul rejoices to pursue
the steps of One I love,
till glory breaks up on my view
in brighter worlds above.
