THE BIBLE OUR LIGHT




How precious is the book divine,
By inspiration given!
Bright as a lamp its doctrines shine,
To guide our souls to heaven.


Its light, descending from above,
Our gloomy world to cheer,
Displays a Saviour's boundless love,
And brings his glories near.


Oer all the straight and narrow way
Its radiant beams are cast;
A light whose never weary ray
Grows brightest at the last.


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.


---Alternative verses---


How precious is the book divine,
By inspiration given!
Bright as a lamp its counsels shine,
To guide our steps to heaven.


That lamp of truth through all the night
Of life, shall mark our way,
Till we behold the clearer light
Of an eternal day.
