What is it shows my soul the way

What is it shows my soul the way

Published in 34 hymnals

Representative Text

1 What is it shows my soul the way
To realms of everlasting day,
And tells the danger of delay?
My Bible, My Bible!

2 What teaches me I'm bound to love
The glorious God who reigns above,
And that I may his goodness prove?
My Bible!

3 What is it gives my spirit rest,
When with the cares of earth opprest,
And point to regions of the blest?
My Bible!
