Trinity Hymnal

The heavens declare thy glory, Lord — Uxbridge

Original Trinity Hymnal, Page 263

The heav'ns declare thy glory, Lord
In every star thy wisdom shines;
But when our eyes behold thy Word,
We read thy Name in fairer lines.

The rolling sun, the changing light,
And nights and days, thy pow'r confess
But the blest volume thou hast writ
Reveals thy justice and thy grace

Sun, moon, and stars convey thy praise
Round the whole earth, and never stand;
So when thy truth began its race,
It touched and glanced on ev'ry land.

Nor shall thy spreading gospel rest
Till through the world thy Truth has run;
Till Christ has all the nations blessed
That see the light, or feel the sun.

Great Sun of Righteousness, arise;
Bless the dark world with heav'nly light:
Thy gospel makes the simple wise,
Thy laws are pure, thy judgments right.

Thy noblest wonders here we view
In souls renewed, and sins forgiv'n:
Lord, cleanse my sins, my soul renew,
And make thy Word my guide to heav'n
