The Bible

The face of my Lord I discover
Whenever I open the Book.

When childhood needs a leader
Or youth a beacon light,
And when sorrow cries for comfort
And weakness cries for might,
Bring forth the Holy Bible.

The Bible, there it stands,
Resolving all of life's problems
And meeting its demands.
Though sophistry conceals it
The Bible-there it stands.
Though Pharisees profane it,
Its influence expands.

It fills our life with fragrance
And brightens all our days.
It lifts our eyes toward Heaven
And gives Him all the praise.

Heed the glad tidings,
The warnings and chidings
Found in this volume of Heavenly store
With faith that's prevailing,
And love that's unfailing,
Trust in its promises for life evermore.

Therefore, think of it carefully;
Study it prayerfully.
Deep in thine heart let its oracles dwell.
Ponder its mystery,
Slight not its history.
None can e'er love it too fondly or well.
