The Book of Books

God's Word is like a hammer
That breaketh the rock in twain;
I lamp to guide our footsteps,
And a light on the stormy main;
A sword that has two edges,
And a mirror ourselves to see
O yes, this is the Book of books,
The B-I-B-L-E!

'Tis living seed that groweth
When into the heart received:
Like milk and meat will cause to grow,
Those who have on Christ believed;
Like water it will cleanse us,
From defilement will set us free
O yes, this is the Book of books,
The B-I-B-L-E!

God's Word is like a lighthouse,
On a wild and stormy sea.
It points to Christ, the Saviour,
Bidding us from wrath to flee.
He wrote it by His Spirit,
It was given for you and me.
Oh, yes, this is the best of books,
The B-I-B-L-E!

Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces? Jeremiah 23:29
