knowledge. 1 ETERNAL Spirit! 'twas thy breath

The oracles of truth inspired; And kings and holy seers of old

With strong proplietic impulse fir'd. 2. Fill'il with thy great almighty pow'r,

Which bore the signature of God. 3 With gladsome hearts they spread the news

4 The pow'rs of earth and hell in vain

Thy providence through ev'ry age

Securely guards the work divine.

And humbly ask a ray from thee,

Its hidden wonders to explore. 2.
