The histories of our Maker’s love,
His wise and holy laws,
Such glorious news from heav’n above,
Deserve our high applause.
Then let us search with great delight
The Sacred Volume through,
Peruse it over, day and night,
And read, and learn, and do.
Here our Redeemer’s name we learn,
And view His grand designs,
The things of infinite concerns,
We read in fairest lines.
‘Tis here immortal glories shine,
Ten thousand beauties rise;
And prove the volume is divine,
And wrote to make us wise.
