“The Heavens Declare Thy Glory, Lord” Watts/Mason
The heavens declare Thy glory, Lord; In every star Thy wisdom shines;
but when our eyes behold Thy Word, we read Thy name in fairer lines.
The rolling sun, the changing light, and night and day, Thy power confess;
But the blest volume Thou hast writ reveals Thy justice and Thy grace.
Sun, moon, and stars convey Thy praise round the whole earth and never stand;
So when Thy truth began its race, it touched and glanced on every land.
Nor shall Thy spreading gospel rest till through the world Thy truth has run;
Till Christ has all the nations blest that see the light, or feel the sun.

I’m so glad to find others who teach the old hymns to their kids! I feel that it is a lot art. I have nothing against the “contemporary” music. I love it! But there is so much theology and doctrine that can be taught in hymns. I teach hymns to my kids and my Awana children. I love it!!
You are so right about the value of teaching hymns for the sound doctrine they contain. Would love to hear what some of your favorites are. You can add to our list by clicking on the “Hooray for Hymns” icon at the top of the Homepage. Thanks for stopping by!
