544. Blessèd Bible (Smith)

1. Blessèd Bible! precious treasure!
Will of Him who reigns above,
Source of blessings without measure,
Telling of a Savior’s love.

I will treasure thee,
Fondly treasure thee,
Blessèd Word of Life,
I’ll treasure thee;
I will treasure thee;
Fondly treasure thee;
Blessèd Word of Life,
I’ll treasure thee.

2. When assailed by doubt or sorrow,
’Tis this Book alone can give
Hope and courage for the morrow,
And all doubt and fear remove. [Refrain]

3. Blessèd Bible! much I love thee!
Naught so dear has e’er been giv’n.
I will ponder well and heed thee,
Pointing out the way to Heav’n. [Refrain]
