Get back to the Bible, the Gospel of love,
Where Jesus the Saviour draws near;
The Word of our Father draws Heaven above,
His promises comfort and cheer.
Go back to the Bible, the good old Bible,
The Word that indeed makes free;
Get back to the Bible, the good old Bible,
A light to your feet it will be.
Get back to the Bible, that wisdom imparts,
A treasure for age and for youth;
Its precepts unfailing bind close on your hearts,
Receive them in faith and in truth.
Get back to the Bible, our beacon of light,
Our guide over life's troubled sea;
Our pillar of fire thro' the gathering night,
That leads, blessèd Saviour, to Thee.

Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever. Psalm 119:160
