Lyrics

Great God, we give Thee praise
For all Thy wondrous grace
Thy wise and ever loving ways
To all our favored race.

Thou hast Thy love revealed
Beyond what prophets knew;
Thy holy Book of truth unsealed
To our astonished view.

We wander now no more
Where darkening errors lead,
But truth by light divine explore,
And wonder while we read.

Lord, we adore Thy name
For light and truth divine!
From Thee the welcomed mercies came,
And be the glory Thine.
