MY BIBLE




Holy Bible! Book divine!
Precious treasure! thou art mine;
Mine to tell me whence I came;
Mine to teach me what I am.


Mine to chide me when I rove;
Mine to show a Saviourís love;
Mine thou art to guide and guard;
Mine to punish or reward.


Mine to comfort in distress;
Suffering in this wilderness;
Mine to show, by living faith,
Man can triumph over death.


Mine to tell of joys to come,
And the rebel sinnerís doom;
O thou holy Book divine,
Precious treasure, thou art mine.


---Alternative verses---


Holy Bible, Book divine,
Precious treasure, thou art mine;
Mine to tell me whence I came;
Mine to tell me what I am.


Mine to chide me when I rove;
Mine to show a Saviourís love;
Mine art thou to guide my feet;
Mine to judge, condemn, acquit.


Mine to comfort in distress;
If the Holy Spirit bless;
Mine to show, by living faith,
Man can triumph over death.


Mine to tell of joys to come,
And the rebel sinnerís doom;
O thou precious Book divine!
Precious treasure, thou art mine.


[Original Lyrics]*****************


Holy Bible, book Divine,
Precious treasure, thou art mine;
Mine to tell me whence I came;
Mine to teach me what I am.


Mine to chide me when I rove;
Mine to shew a Saviourís love;
Mine art thou to guide my feet;
Mine to judge, condemn, acquit.


Mine to comfort in distress;
If the Holy Spirit bless;
Mine to shew, by living faith,
Man can triumph over death.


Mine to tell of joys to come,
And the rebel sinnerís doom;
Holy Bible, book Divine,
Precious treasure, thou art mine.
