O Blessed, Blessed Bible

O blessèd, blessèd Bible!
God's light upon our way;
Soft, shining over our darkness,
With beams of heav'nly day;
'Mid clouds of care and sorrow,
And storms of grief and pain,
Its promises are radiant
When earthly hope is vain.

Refrain
We thank Thee for the Bible,
O Father good and kind!
Help us, O Holy Spirit,
Its deepest truth to find!

O blessèd, blessèd Bible,
Our only certain guide
Amid earth's tangled footpaths,
With snares on every side;
Its leadings may we follow
Along the upward way,
And never in our blindness,
From its blest precepts stray.

O blessèd, blessèd Bible!
O mine of wealth untold!
More precious and enduring
Than earthly crowns of gold;
Its riches are unbounded,
And all who seek may find
Bright gems of heav'nly luster,
Enough for all mankind.

—by Burton H. Winslow

Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word. Psalm 119:9
