Nor turned his heart from me.

More glorious, when the Lord was there;
While he pronounced his holy law,

And struck the chosen tribes with awe.

When the rebellious powers of hell,
That thousand souls had captive made,
Were all in chains, like captives, led.

He sent his promised Spirit down,
With gifts and grace for rebel men,.
That God might dwell on earth again.

Shall in his promises rejoice ;
With gladness in their hearts, shall raise,
Before his throne, triumphant praise.
