Representative Text

1 O blessed, blessed Bible!
God’s light upon our way;
Soft, shining, o’er our darkness,
With beams of heav’nly day;
‘Mid clouds of care and sorrow,
And storms of grief and pain,
Its promises are radiant
When earthly hope is vain.

Refrain:
We thank Thee for the Bible,
O Father good and kind!
Help us, O Holy Spirit,
Its deepest truth to find!

2 O blessed, blessed Bible;
Our only certain guide
Amid earth’s tangled footpaths,
With snares on ev’ry side;
Its leadings may we follow,
Along the upward way,
And never in our blindness,
From its blest precepts stray. [Refrain]

3 O blessed, blessed Bible!
O mine of wealth untold!
More precious and enduring
Than earthly crowns of gold.
Its riches are unbounded,
And all who seek may find
Bright gems of heav’nly lustre,
Enough for all mankind. [Refrain]
