Or thorns compose so rich a crown?
Page 142 - 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 rolling sun, the changing light, And nights, and days, thy power confess , But the blest volume thou hast writ Reveals thy justice and thy grace.
