A Glory In The Word
ORTONVILLE  C.M.

STUDY OF THE WORD
A glory in the word we find
When grace restores our sight;
But sin has darkened all the mind,
And veiled the heavenly light.
When God's own Spirit clears our view,
How bright the doctrines shine!
Their holy fruits and sweetness show
The author is divine.
How blest are we, with open face
To view Thy glory, Lord,
And all Thy image here to trace,
Reflected in Thy word!
O teach us, as we look to grow
In holiness and love.
That we may long to see and know
Thy glorious face above.

Reflected in Thy word!

In holiness and love.
