Psalm 19:2 Second Part [Behold The Morning Sun]
by [?]


Psalm 19:2. Second Part. S. M.
God’s word most excellent; or,
Sincerity and watchfulness.

For a Lord’s-day morning.

Behold the morning sun
Begins his glorious way;
His beams thro’ all the nations run,
And life and light convey.

But where the gospel comes,
It spreads diviner light,
It calls dead sinners from their tombs,
And gives the blind their sight.

How perfect is thy word!
And all thy judgments just!
For ever sure thy promise, Lord,
And men securely trust.

My gracious God, how plain
Are thy directions given!
O! may I never read in vain,
But find the path to heaven!

PAUSE.

I hear thy word with love,
And I would fain obey;
Send thy good Spirit from above
To guide me, lest I stray.

O who can ever find
The errors of his ways?
Yet, with a bold presumptuous mind,
I would not dare transgress.

Warn me of every sin,
Forgive my secret faults,
And cleanse this guilty soul of mine,
Whose crimes exceed my thoughts.

While with my heart and tongue
I spread thy praise abroad,
Accept the worship and the song,
My Saviour and my God.
