Bright burning beams of gospel grace

Full Text

1. Bright burning beams of gospel grace
Haste Lord, for to display;
For to burn up in all thy saints
Their stubble, wood, and hay.

2 Break forth O Sun of Righteousness
Unto the perfect day:
Haste Holy One unto thy throne,
Our Jesus, haste away!

3 But O, who may abide the day
When Zion's King shall reign?
Who may abide, when he the pride
Of all proud flesh shall stain?

4 Tremble ye careless ones, that are
At ease in Zion, and
Wonder and stay, because that day
Is very nigh at hand:

5 It now doth dawn; the glorious morn
Begins for to appear;
What else doth mean these lowings, and
These bleatings which we hear?

6 The saints do sing to Christ their King,
Whilst others rage in pain,
Because his bright and dazzling light
Shines through the world amain.

7 Redeemed ones, sing praises, for
This fire's but sent to try,
And purge your dross, that by its loss
Christ may you purify.

The Christian's duty, exhibited in a series of hymns, 1791
