Sacred Songs and Solos Lyrics
Hymn No.268

First Line: The heavens declare Thy glory, Lord,

The heavens declare Thy glory, Lord !
In every star Thy wisdom shines ;
But when our eyes behold Thy Word,
We read Thy name in fairer lines.

2 The radiant sun, the changing light,
And nights and days Thy power confess ;
But the blest volume Thou hast writ
Reveals Thy justice and Thy grace.

3 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 every land.

4 Nor shall Thy spreading Gospel rest,
Till through the world Thy truth has
Till Christ has all the nations blest
That see the light or feel the sun.
