Representative Text

1 Precious words, like music stealing,
O’er the troubled heart opprest;
To the weary fainting spirit,
Breathing comfort, hope, and rest.

“Thou wilt keep him in prefect peace,
whose mind is stayed on Thee,
Because he trusteth in Thee,
Because he trusteth in Thee.”

2 Precious words, that cheer us onward,
When the day is dark and drear,
Lighting up the path before us,
While their living tunes we hear. [Refrain]

3 Precious words of holy promise,
From the home of angels bright;
By the Spirit softly whispered
In the silent hours of night. [Refrain]

4 Precious words, that lift us upward,
All our earthly cares above,
To the Fount of life eternal,
And the source of endless love. [Refrain]
