Representative Text

1 Love the Bible, blessèd book of heav’nly truth,
Words of beauty shining, love and duty twining;
Bear it daily in the tender heart of youth,
Every thought and word refining.

This is the power of God unto life,
Wisdom’s sacred precepts for the way;
Sword of Spirit, giving victory in the strife—
God’s own book, the blessèd Bible.

2 Know the Bible, read its pages o’er and o’er,
Gathering treasure surest, finding pleasure purest,
Of His power and mercy learning more and more—
Thus true wisdom thou securest. [Refrain]

3 Live the Bible, in the life its precepts show,
Humbly praying ever, work delaying never;
Thus in life and death thy trusting heart shall know
Peace, sweet peace, that none can sever. [Refrain]
