11953. Blessed Book

1 There’s a blessèd Book, and if sinners look
They will find the way to glory;
While its pages rare young and old may share,
’Tis a wondrous old, old story.

Refrain:
’Tis the living way to the realms of day,
Is this wondrous old, old story;
For it it is the guide
To the Christ who died,
’Tis a wondrous old, old story.

2 There’s a blessèd Book, and if Christians look,
They will find the path of duty;
’Tis the only guide to the portals wide
Of the realms of heav’nly beauty. [Refrain]

3 To the blessèd Book we will ever look,
’Tis the Holy Spirit calling,
From the way of sin it will sweetly win,
And it keeps the saint from falling. [Refrain]
