O precious Bible burning words from heaven We'll




O precious Bible! burning words from heaven,
Weíll ever cherish thee in our heart;
Sweet is the counsel by thy pages given:
On lifeís dark ocean, our only chart.

Blessed Bible! Blessed Bible!
Joyful tidings from our home;
Thou art the rock of everlasting ages;
Hope of eternal bliss at heavenís throne.



O precious volume! only in thy pages
We read the duty of all our race;
Only thy sunbeams, shining through the ages,
Reveal the wonders of saving grace.

Blessed Bible! Blessed Bible!
Joyful tidings from our home;
Thou art the rock of everlasting ages;
Hope of eternal bliss at heavenís throne.



This book of heaven shall endure forever;
And from its wisdom weíll never turn;
Weighed in its balance, all the creeds that sever
Are only stubble, ere long to burn.

Blessed Bible! Blessed Bible!
Joyful tidings from our home;
Thou art the rock of everlasting ages;
Hope of eternal bliss at heavenís throne.



Dear book of mercy, on thy sure foundation
We build a dwelling-place for the soul;
Hearing and doing all thy revelation,
It stands unshaken, though billows roll.

Blessed Bible! Blessed Bible!
Joyful tidings from our home;
Thou art the rock of everlasting ages;
Hope of eternal bliss at heavenís throne.

Thou art the rock of everlasting ages;
Hope of eternal bliss at heavenís throne.
