8 Experience and the word agree,
Draw nigh says God; I’ll draw nigh thee.
Then are they wise who do deny,
The works of faith beneath the sky?
 
Hymn 70 • Great is the Lord: ‘tis good to praise
HYMN 70. C. M.
 
1 Great is the Lord: ’tis good to praise
His high and holy name:
Well may the saints in latter days
His wondrous love proclaim.
 
2 To praise him let us all engage,
That unto us is giv’n:
To live in this momentous age,
And share the light of heav’n.
 
3 We’ll praise him for our happy lot,
On this much favored land;
Where truth, and righteousness are taught,
By his divine command.
 
4 We’ll praise him for more glorious things,
Than language can express,
The “everlasting gospel” brings,
The humble souls to bless.
 
5 The Comforter is sent again,
His pow’r the church attends; [p. 92]
