My Bible

There is a book more precious

Than anything on earth.

No wealth of gold or jewels

Can equal it in worth.

I go to it in trouble,

And though my heart is sore,

It always gives me comfort,

I love it more and more.


When doubtful what is best for me,

I seek its guidance true;

And if I search with open mind,

It tells me what to do.

I lay it on my pillow

Or I clasp it to my.breast,

When I am sad or lonely,

It always gives me rest.



The living Word, is He -

So my Bible, and my Saviour

Are all the same to me.

His Holy Spirit leads me

His Word to understand.

So as I hold my Bible

The Saviour holds my hand,
