Representative Text

1 Wonderful Bible, book of all ages,
Gift of our Father, sent from above,
Life everlasting beams from its pages,
Peace beyond measure, mercy and love.

Refrain:
Wonderful Bible, book of salvation,
Telling of mercy, breathing of love;
Wonderful Bible, God’s revelation,
Showing His children mansions above.

2 Wonderful Bible, beautiful story,
Story of Jesus, Savior of men;
Dying for sinners, pleading in glory,
Hear it with gladness, tell it again. [Refrain]

3 Wonderful Bible! none ever perish
Heeding its counsels, led by its light;
Every sweet promise, O let us cherish,
Till Heaven’s morning end earthly night. [Refrain]

4 Wonderful Bible, blessed possession,
Let us uphold it, home and abroad;
Servants of Jesus, this be our mission,
Send to the needy, tidings from God. [Refrain]
