Full Text

1 A glory in the word we find
When grace restores our sight;
But sin has darkened all the mind,
And vail'd the heav'nly light.
And vail'd the heav'nly light.

2 When God's own Spirit clears our view,
How bright the doctrines shine!
Their holy fruits and sweetness show
The author is divine.
The author is divine.

3 How blest are we, with open face
To view thy glory, Lord,
And all thy image here to trace,
Reflected in thy word!
Reflected in thy word!

4 O teach us, as we look, to grow
In holiness and love,
That we may long to see and know
Thy glorious face above.
Thy glorious face above.
