Full Text

1 Wonderful Bible! Book of God;
Guide and counsel to mortals giv’n;
Lamp to the path by the ransomed trod,
Lighting the way from earth to heav’n.

Refrain:
Shine, O wonderful light divine,
Lamp of Truth, in this dark world shine,
Shine thro’ the night of doubts and fears,
Shine till the morn of God appears!

2 Wonderful Bible! Law of the Lord;
All its precepts in grace abound;
And in their keeping is great reward;
Life everlasting there is found. [Refrain]

3 Wonderful Bible! Radiance bright;
Ray serene from the world above,
Fairest of stars in the humanity’s night,
Fill now our hearts with light and love. [Refrain]
