Text Based On Romans Chapter 10 (KJV)
So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
But I say, Have they not heard? Yes verily, their sound went into all the earth,
and their words unto the ends of the world.

I LOVE THE VOLUMES OF THY WORD
I love the volumes of Thy Word;
What light and joy those leaves afford-
To souls benighted and distressed!
Thy precepts guide my doubtful way,
Thy fear forbids my feet to stray,
Thy promise leads my heart to rest.
From the discoveries of Thy law-
The perfect rules of life I draw;
These are my study and delight:
Not honey so invites the taste,
Nor gold that hath the furnace past-
Appears so pleasing to the sight.
Thy threat’nings wake my slumb’ring eyes,
And warn me where my danger lies;
But ’tis Thy blessèd Gospel, Lord,
That makes my guilty conscience clean,
Converts my soul, subdues my sin,
And gives a free, but large reward.
Who knows the errors of his thoughts?
My God, forgive my secret faults,
And from presumptuous sins restrain:
Accept my poor attempts of praise,
That I have read Thy book of grace,
And book of nature, not in vain.
