Representative Text

1 O, study it carefully,
Think of it prayerfully,
Deep in thy heart let its pure precepts dwell;
O, slight not its history,
Ponder its mystery,
None can e’er prize it too fondly or well.

O the Bible, blessed Bible,
God’s truth is revealed in its pages;
It strengthens the young and it comforts the old,
It stands like a rock through the ages.

2 Accept the glad tidings,
The warnings and chidings,
We find in this volume of heavenly lore;
With faith that’s unfailing,
And love all prevailing,
Rely on its promise of life evermore. [Refrain]

3 With fervent devotion,
And thankful emotion,
Oh, hear the blest welcome, respond to its call;
Life’s purest oblation,
The heart’s adoration,
Bestow on the Savior, who died for us all. [Refrain]

4 This message of love
From the Triune above
To each nation and kindred, and people is giv’n;
The ransomed shall raise
Joyous anthems of praise,
Singing loud hallelujahs on earth and in Heav’n. [Refrain]
