I love the sacred book of God;
No other can its place supply:
It points me to the saints' abode,
And lifts my joyful thoughts on high


Blest book! in thee my eyes discern
The image of my absent Lord:
From thine instructive page I learn
The joys his presence will afford.


But while I'm here, thou shalt supply
His place, and tell me of his love:
I'll read with faith's discerning eye,
And thus partake of joys above.

I love the sacred book of God;
No other can its place supply;
It points me to the saintsí abode,
It gives me wings, and bids me fly.


Sweet book! in thee my eyes discern
The image of my absent Lord:
From thine instructive page I learn
The joys his presence will afford.
