1 Take the dear old Bible with you,
Men of toil, where’er you go.
It will strength and comfort give you;
Read its truth and you shall know.
Precious book, sacred book,
Word of God,
And Guide to heaven.
2 Take the dear, old Bible with you,
As a shield from every snare.
When dark clouds begin to gather,
Read this book, then bow in prayer. [Refrain]
3 How the Precious Story thrills us,
How it lightens every care.
With this Manna daily feed us,
With thy yoke our burdens share. [Refrain]Source: The King of Glory #157b
