1 A look into my Bible,
In mornings dewy hour,
For all the day may bring me,
Will gird my soul with pow’r;
You who have never tried it,
Know not the help ‘twill be;
But, oh, this word of blessing
Means so much to me.

Refrain:
It means so much, so much to me,
Of mercy full and free, full and free;
A smile of love from the Lord above
Means so much to me.

2 A heart-to-heart communion
Before the throne of grace,
Reveals to me more clearly
The sunshine of his face;
You who have never tried it,
Know not the light ‘twill be;
But, oh, a talk with Jesus
Means so much to me. [Refrain]

3 An all-day walk with Jesus,
While busy moments fly,
Rejoicing in his service,
Thru grace that he’ll supply;
You who have never tried it,
Know not the joy ‘twill be;
But, oh, this life with Jesus
Means so much to me. [Refrain]
