THE BIBLE OUR LIGHT




How precious is the book divine,
by inspiration given;
bright as a lamp its pages shine
|:to guide our souls to heaven.:|


It sweetly cheers our fainting hearts
in this dark vale of tears;
life, light and joy it still imparts,
|:and quells our rising fears.:|


This lamp shall guide our steps aright
and cheer us on our way,
till we behold the clearer light
|:of an eternal day.:|


Divine Instructor, gracious Lord,
be thou ever near;
teach me to love thy sacred Word
|:and view my Savior there.:|


---Alternative verses---


It sweetly cheers our drooping hearts
in this dark vale of tears;
life, light and joy it still imparts,
|:and quells our rising fears.:|


This lamp, through all the tedious night
Of life, shall guide our way,
Till we behold the clearer light
|: Of an eternal day. :|
