Jehovah's image brightly shone

Jehovah's image brightly shone

Author: W. Garner
Published in 6 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Jehovah's image brightly shone
In Eden's lovely pair,
And oft before his gracious throne,
They bowed in praise and prayer.

2 With rectitude, as with a robe,
Their spotless souls were dressed,
With peace abounding, and with joy,
They were divinely blessed.

3 No self-reproach, no slavish dread
Disturbed their peace within;
No frowning storm their path o'erspread,
While undefiled with sin.

4 Thus souls renewed by saving grace--
Whose sins have been forgiven,
Behold the smiles of Jesus' face,
And feel an inward heaven.
