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.

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]
