Hymn/Song Information

By the word of God the worlds were made




By the word of God
the worlds were made,
And are held in place
by His commands;
All the grasses wither
and the flowers fade,
But His truth forever stands.

Oh, the precious Bible,
Counsel for the soul,
Path the faithful saints
and martyrs trod;
Settled in the heavens,
True while ages roll,
Changeless as the throne of God.



More to be desired
than honey sweet,
Richer are its treasures,
far, than gold;
Like a brilliant light,
it shines to guide my feet,
Never grows its story old.

Oh, the precious Bible,
Counsel for the soul,
Path the faithful saints
and martyrs trod;
Settled in the heavens,
True while ages roll,
Changeless as the throne of God.



Thy eternal law is my delight,
Strength and daily manna to my soul;
íTis my meditation
all the day and night,
Balm to make the wounded whole.

Oh, the precious Bible,
Counsel for the soul,
Path the faithful saints
and martyrs trod;
Settled in the heavens,
True while ages roll,
Changeless as the throne of God.



Stream of life from heaven,
crystal pure,
Shed thy cooling freshness over me;
Let my thirsting spirit,
till I thirst no more,
Drink thy sparkling waters free.

Oh, the precious Bible,
Counsel for the soul,
Path the faithful saints
and martyrs trod;
Settled in the heavens,
True while ages roll,
Changeless as the throne of God.
