Holiness

Beautiful holiness! theme of the Bible

Author: Barney Elliott Warren
Tune: HOLINESS (HUNTER)
Published in 4 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Beautiful holiness! theme of the Bible,
Filling my heart with its riches of grace;
Cleansing and keeping me ever from evil,
Fitting my soul for that heavenly place.

2 Beautiful holiness! fair as the morning,
Sparkling with jewels of purity bright;
Rubies of grace in their splendid adorning,
Cover me here as I walk in the light.

3 Beautiful holiness! coming from heaven,
Likeness of God and the angels above;
Jesus, the way, and the Bible, are given—
Wonderful favor through infinite love!

4 Beautiful holiness! blissful, eternal,
Surely without it no man seeth God;
It will prepare us for glories immortal—
This is the way our dear Savior hath trod.
