1 Praise to Him by whose kind favor
Heav'nly truth has reached our ears;
May its sweet reviving savor
Fill our hearts and calm our fears.
2 Truth! how sacred is the treasure!
Teach us, Lord, its worth to know;
Vain the hope, and short the pleasure
Which from other sources flow.
3 What of truth we have been hearing,
Fix, O Lord, in ev'ry heart;
In the day of thy appearing
May we share thy people's part.
