Full Text

1 Praise God for the Bible
It comes like a friend,
To counsel and comfort,
To guide and defend;
Praise God for the Bible,
More precious than gold,
The words of sure promise
Its pages unfold.

Refrain:
Praise, praise, ever praise,
Praise God for the Bible
That gladdens our days.

2 Praise God for the Bible,
The mirror of sin,
That shows us our wrongness
Without and within;
Praise God for the Bible,
The water of truth
Which gladdens and cleanses
The way of our youth. [Refrain]

3 Praise God for the Bible;
It burns like a fire,
As dross from the silver,
Each evil desire;
Praise God for the Bible,
His letter of love
To fathers and children,
Inviting above. [Refrain]

4 Praise God for the Bible,
That kills like a sword
Our sins and wrong doings,
And fights for the Lord;
Praise God for the Bible,
A lamp in our feet,
‘Twill guide us to heaven
Our Savior to greet. [Refrain]
