Precious word

Full Text

1 Lamp to my feet wherever I stray;
Guide never-failing from day to day;
Leading me homeward unto my Lord-
Counsel of wisdom, God's precious Word.

Holy Bible, book divine,
Precious treasure, thou art mine;
Mine to tell me whence I came,
Mine to tell me what I am.

2 Bread to my soul when famine is near;
Water of Life, cool, refreshing, clear;
Strength in my weakness, never to fail;
Safety when trial and doubt assail. [Chorus]

3 Comfort when sorrows over me roll;
Hope all-sustaining unto my soul;
Shelter that for all time shall endure,
Anchor eternal, unfailing, sure. [Chorus]
