The people that in darkness lay in sin and errors

1.THE people that In darkness lay,
In sin and error's deadly shade,
Have seen a glorious gospel day
In Jesu's lovely face displayed.

2.Thou only,Lord,the work hast done,
And bared Thine arm In all our sight;
Hast made the reprobates  Thine own,
And claimed the outcasts as Thy right.

3.Thine  arm  alone,  almighty  Lord,
To us the great salvation brought,
Thy Word, Thy all-creating Word,
That spake  at  first  the  world from  nought.

4.For this the saints lift up their voice,
And ceaseless praise to Thee is given;
For this the hosts above rejoice;
We raise the happiness of heaven.
