Redeemed Hymn 91 – The Spirit Breathes Upon the Word

“The entrance of Thy words giveth light”-Ps. 119:130

1 The spirit breathes upon the Word,

And brings the truth to sight;

Precepts and promises afford,

A sanctifying light.


2 A glory gilds the sacred page,

Majestic, like the sun:

It gives a light to every age,

It gives, but borrow none.


3 The hand that gave it still supplies

The gracious light and heat:

Its truths upon the nations rise

They rise, but never set.


4 Let everlasting thanks be Thine

For such a brigh display,

As makes a world of darkness shine

With beams of heavenly day


5 My soul rejoices to pursue

The steps of Him I love,

Till glory breaks upon my view

In brighter worlds above.
