Creation and Scripture

Heaven declares the glory,
The sky proclaims the beauty;
Which tells a wondrous story,
Of devotion to duty.

The handiwork that is shown,
Day by day pours out its speech;
Night to night reveals as known,
The knowledge that we beseech.

There is no speech nor a Word,
A voice goes out through the earth;
From whose voice that is not heard,
The end what the world is worth.

Christ comes out from His chamber,
Like a bridegroom or strong man;
Someone not to encumber,
Running with joy in His plan.

Its rising is from the end,
And its circuit in Heaven;
Nothing hidden to offend,
In which the Lord has given.

Law of the Lord is perfect,
Making specific and wise;
Testify not to reject,
Reviving soul through the eyes.

Precepts of the Lord are right,
For rejoicing in the heart;
For enlightening the sight,
The purity to impart.

The fear of the Lord is clean,
As it endures forever;
Unto your faith is unseen,
Righteousness will not sever.

Be desired more than gold,
Sweeter also than honey;
As your reward will unfold,
Worth more than all the money.

His errors who can discern,
Declared innocent of faults;
Salvation that I will earn,
Secured hidden in His vaults.

Then I shall then be blameless,
Innocent of transgression;
That has now left me shameless,
God accepts my confession.
