I Love the Bible

I love the Holy Bible,
Because therein I see
How Jesus came from glory
To show the way to me;
Oh, how could I have heard His call,
Or else have found the way at all?
The Bible, the Bible!
My treasure and my guide.

I trust the Holy Bible,
It is my Father's word,
Wherein are songs of gladness
That carol like a bird;
I often falter, this I know,
But oh, I love the Bible so;
The Bible, the Bible!
My treasure and my guide.

I read the Holy Bible,
And take it for my guide;
And in its blest assurance,
Securely I will hide;
O, that the whole wide world might know,
Whence all our joys and comforts flow;
The Bible, the Bible!
My treasure and my guide.

—by Fanny Crosby (1820–1915)

The best evidence of our having the truth is our walking in the truth. Matthew Henry
