194. Blessed Bible, how I love it!

1 Blessed Bible, how I love it!
How it doth my bosom cheer!
What hath earth like this to covet!
O, what stores of wealth are here!

2 'Tis a fountain ever bursting,
Whence the weary may obtain
Water for the soul that's thirsting,
That it may not thirst again.

3 'Tis a chart that never faileth,
One which God to man has given;
And though oft the storm assaileth,
It will guide you safe to heaven.

4 'Tis a pearl of price exceeding
All the gems in ocean found;
And, its sacred precepts heeding,
So shall you in grace abound.
