Representative Text

1 God's word of prophecies are giv'n,
His counsels to reveal;
More firm and sure than earth or heav'n,
They stand and never fail.

2 This word is like the morning star,
Just glaring thro' the skies!
First shews its dawning from afar,
Until the Sun arise.

3 More piercing than the purest light,
It casts aa heav'nly ray;
Dispells the pow'r of darkest night,
And turns it into day.

4 As all the Prophets prophecied,
Inspir'd from God above,
All are fulfill'd and verified
As circumstances prove.

5 As Moses in his day declar'd,
And all the fathers shew'd;
The Lord of lite has now appear'd
To make us sons of God.

6 May I unto this light give heed!
Since none but this alone
Can be, the light of life I need:
To make the Lord my own.
