1 Lord, Thy Word, that sacred treasure,
Let me evermore retain;
Naught of earth can give the pleasure
That I from its wealth may gain.
Were Thy truth no more to guide us,
How our faith would go astray!
Lord, whatever may betide us,
Let this light illume our way.
2 Hallelujah, now and ever
Be Thy truth my stay, O Lord!
Grant in mercy that I never
Cease to love Thy precious Word.
By its teachings so appealing
May it keep me firm and true;
At Thy feet with Mary kneeling,
I would learn Thy will to do.
