Representative Text

1 The cross and the Bible, how precious their worth!
From darkness reclaiming the lost ones of earth;
The Bible, to Jesus our lamp and our guide,
Unveils to our vision the Cross where he died.

Refrain:
O, the Cross and the Bible for me!
O, the Cross and the Bible for me!
How precious their worth to the lost ones of earth!
O, the Cross and the Bible for me!

2 The Cross and the Bible, how grandly sublime!
Unmoved by the changes and perils of time,
They stand like a watch-tower, whose rock-girded form
Looks down on the tempest, and smiles at the storm. [Refrain]

3 The Cross and the Bible, our comfort and joy!
The links that unite them no power can destroy;
Eternity’s ages shall hallow their name,
And millions on millions their worth shall proclaim. [Refrain]
