I Love My Bible

I love my Bible, for it is
The pure inspired word;
It came from God; it leads to bliss;
Its author is the Lord.

I love my Bible for the truth
Revealed on every page;
It taught me wisdom in my youth,
It cheers my hoary age.

I love my Bible, for it shows
The path that leads to heaven,
And points me to that calm repose-
The joy of sins forgiven.

I love my Bible, for it tells
Of endless joys to come,
Where Jesus my Redeemer dwells-
The saints' eternal home.

I love my Bible for the light
It sheds along my way-
My lamp in dark affliction's night,
My guide to endless day.

I love my Bible for the balm
It has to heal my grief-
A soothing promise or a psalm
To give a sweet relief.

O! may the Bible widely spread,
Diffuse the living word-
T' awaken sinners from the dead,
And bring them to the Lord.
