Introduction (full verse) + 3 verses:

Verse 1:
Sweet is the peace the gospel brings
To seeking minds and true.
With light refulgent on its wings
It clears the human view.

Verse 2:
Its laws and precepts are divine
And show a Father's care.
Transcendent love and mercy shine
In each injunction there.

Verse 3.
Faithless tradition flees its pow'r,
And unbelief gives way.
The gloomy clouds, which used to low'r,
Submit to reason's sway.
