12 The key of knowledge long since lost,
Has virtue still as at the first,
To bring to light things of great worth,
And thus with knowledge fill the earth.
 
13 Then none need to his neighbor say,
Know thou the Lord, this is the way,
For all shall know him who shall stand,
Both old and young in all the land.
 
14 Now let the saints both far and near,
And scatter’d Israel, when they hear
This news, rejoice in Israel’s God,
And sing, and praise his name aloud.
 
Hymn 73 • Thy mercy, my God, is the theme of my song
HYMN 73. P. M
 
1 Thy mercy, my God, is the theme of my song,
The joy of my heart, and the boast of my tongue;
Thy free grace alone, from the first to the last,
Hath won my affections and bound my soul fast.
 
2 Without thy sweet mercy I could not live here, [p. 97]
