545415_10151147626672903_1251332594_nAn Open Bible For The World

 

Here’s a great hymn to start 2013 with. Special thanks to Bro. Gregory for introducing this hymn to me.

 

Lyrics: Henry M. King
Music: William J. Kirkpatrick

 

An open Bible for the world—
May this our glorious motto be!
On ev’ry breeze its flag unfurled
Shall scatter blessings rich and free.

 

Refrain:
Blest Word of God! send forth thy light.
O’er every land and every sea,
Till all who wander in the night
Are led to God and heaven by thee.

 

Where’er it goes its golden light,
Streaming as from an unveiled sun,
Shall dissipate the clouds of night,
Undo the work that sin has done.

 

It shows to men the Father’s face,
All radiant with forgiving love;
And to the lost of Adam’s race
Proclaims sweet mercy from above.

 

It offers rest to weary hearts,
It comforts those who sit in tears;
To all who faint, it strength imparts,
And gilds with hope th’eternal years.

A Clean Heart

Play
Lyrics: Walter C. Smith
Music: Fred H. Byshe

One thing I of the Lord desire,
For all my path hath miry been,
Be it by water or by fire,
O make me clean, O make me clean.

Refrain:
Wash me, Thou, without, within,
Or purge with fire, if that must be,
No matter how, if only sin
Die out in me, die out, die out in me.

If clearer vision Thou impart,
Grateful and glad my soul shall be;
But yet to have a purer heart
Is more to me, is more to me.

Yea, only as this heart is clean
May larger vision yet be mine,
For mirrored in its depths are seen
The things divine, the things divine.

I watch to shun the miry way,
And stanch the springs of guilty thought,
But, watch and struggle as I may,
Pure I am not, pure I am not.
