1 Like a star of the morning in its beauty,
Like a sun is the Bible to my soul,
Shining clear on the way of love and duty,
As I hasten on my journey to the goal.
Holy Bible! my precious Bible!
Gift of God, and lamp of life,
My beautiful Bible!
I will cling to the dear old holy Bible,
As I hasten to the city of the King.
2 Tis a light in the wilderness of sorrow,
And a lamp on the weary pilgrim way;
And it guides to the bright, eternal morrow,
Shining more and more unto the perfect day. [Refrain]
3 ’Tis the voice of a friend forever near me,
In the toil and the battle here below;
In the gloom of the valley it will cheer me,
Till the glory of His kingdom I shall know. [Refrain]
4 It shall stand in its beauty and its glory,
When the earth and the heavens pass away,
Ever telling the blessèd, wondrous story
Of the loving Lamb, the only Living Way. [Refrain]
