During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

Representative Text

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

Chorus:
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]
