Representative Text

1 Precious forever! O wonderful words,
Teach me the pathway of duty;
Lead me beside the still waters of life,
Flowing thro' valleys of beauty.

Refrain:
Precious forever to you and to me,
Words that our Savior has spoken,
Bearing salvation far over the sea,
Healing the hearts that are broken!

2 Freely he offers their promise to all,
"Come unto me whosoever;"
Sinners, oppressed with a burden of woe,
Drink of the bountiful river.[Refrain]

3 Wouldst thou refuse the sweet solace he gives
In the midnight of thy sorrow?
Wouldst thou go on in the darkness of sin,
Longing for no bright to-morrow? [Refrain]
