The Bible the Bible more precious than




The Bible! the Bible!
more precious than gold,
The hopes and the glories
its pages unfold;
It speaks of a Savior,
and tells of His love;
|:It shows us the way
to the mansions above.:|


The Bible! the Bible!
blest volume of truth,
How sweetly it smiles
on the season of youth!
It bids us seek early
the pearl of great price,
|:Ere th’heart is enslaved
in the bondage of vice.:|


The Bible! the Bible!
we hail it with joy,
Its truths and its glories
our tongues shall employ;
We’ll sing of its triumphs,
we’ll sing of its worth,
|:And send its glad tidings
afar o’er the earth.:|


The Bible! the Bible!
the valleys shall ring,
And hilltops re-echo
the notes that we sing;
Our banners inscribed
with its precepts and rules
|:Shall long wave in triumph,
the joy of our schools:|
