Christian Worship The Gospel Revelation.
God, in the Gospel of his Son,
Makes his eternal counsels known;
‘Tis here his richest mercy shines,
And truth is drawn in fairest lines.
Wisdom its dictates here imparts,
To form our minds, to cheer our hearts;
Its influence makes the sinner live;
It bids the drooping saint revive.
Our raging passions it controls,
And comfort yields to contrite souls;
It brings a better world in view,
And guides us all our journey through.
May this blest volume ever lie
Close to my heart, and near my eye,
Till life’s last hour my soul engage,
And be my chosen heritage.
