38. The Bible

1 Lamp of our feet, whereby we trace
Our path when wont to stray;
Stream from the fount of heav'nly grace,
Brook by the trav’ler's way.

Beautiful Lamp;
Brightly shine on the way,
Guiding the soul
To the mansions of day.

2 Bread of our souls, where on we feed,
True manna from on high;
Our guide and chart, wherein we read
Of realms beyond the sky. [Refrain]

3 Word of the everlasting God,
Will of His glorious Son;
Without Thee how could earth be trod
Or heav'n itself be won? [Refrain]

4 Lord, grant us all aright to learn
The wisdom it imparts,
And to its heav’nly teaching turn
With simple, childlike hearts. [Refrain]
