1 Like a palace full of windows
Open wide unto the light,
Is the Gospel of salvation,
All its words are pure and right.

Blessèd Gospel, holy Gospel,
Voice of God to help and cheer,
May we find thy precious pages
Growing dearer year by year.

2 As a lamp, its heavenly pages
Shed their glory o’er our way
Unto mortal eyes revealing
Visions clear of endless day. [Refrain]

3 Like a crystal river flowing
From the throne of God above,
To the living, to the dying,
Bringing cooling streams of love. [Refrain]

Lizzie De Armond was a prolific writer of children's hymns, recitations and exercises. When she was twelve years old her first poem was published in the Germantown, Pa. Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
