Biblical trace of the Church


The church of the morning bright,
Like crystal so clear her light,
Triumphant, she knew no fears;
In finest white linen dressed;
Pure holiness she possessed,
Two hundred and sevínty years.

Refrain:
Hell never can destroy the church,
Built by the Saviorís hands;
Upon the Rock, the solid Rock,
Christ Jesus, still she stands;
Despite of persecutionís flood,
And gates of hell forsooth;
Sheís still the kingdom of the Lord,
The pillar of the truth.

The sun went down ere his time,
The moon also ceased to shine,
Left Zion in bitter tears;
No star then appeared in sight,
Oh, long dreary papal night!
Twelve hundred and sixty years.

A rising the sun of day,
Disperses the night away
While popery quakes with fears;
Shone dimly the gospel ray,
There followed a cloudy dayó
Three hundred and fifty years.
