12. Blessed Bible

1 Blessed Bible! priceless treasure!
Will of Him who reigns above,
Source of blessings without measure,
Telling of a Saviour’s love.

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

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

3 Blessed 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. [Chorus]
