    A glory gilds the sacred page,
    Majestic like the sun;
    It gives a light to every age;
    It gives, but borrows none.

    The Spirit breathes upon the Word
    And brings the truth to sight;
    Precepts and promises afford
    A sanctifying light.

    The hand that gave it still supplies
    The gracious light and heat;
    His truths upon the nations rise;
    They rise, but never set.

    Let everlasting thanks be Thine
    For such a bright display.
    As makes a world of darkness shine
    With beams of heavenly day.

    My soul rejoices to pursue
    The steps of Him I love,
    Till glory breaks upon my view
    In brighter worlds above.

    --William Cowper (1770)
