1 No book like the Bible, inspired from above,
No book like the Bible, God’s message of love;
Its pages of wisdom, how brightly they shine!
Its truth is eternal, its language divine.
Dear Book of Life, we cling to thee,
Our guide, our chart, on life’s dark sea;
Dear Book of Life, that God has giv’n,
Our hope on earth, our joy in heav’n.
2 No book like the Bible, with comfort replete,
Each soul-cheering promise, how precious and sweet!
It tells of a Saviour, and shows us the way
To realms that are fadeless and brighter than day. [Refrain]
3 O help us, dear Father, to walk in its light,
That keeps us from evil, and leads us aright;
To treasure the wisdom its pages unfold,
A wisdom more precious than silver or gold. [Refrain]
