O Changeless Word

O changeless Word of life and light,
A perfect rule to guide me,
I take thy counsels, trust thy truth,
And in my heart I hide thee.

Precious Bible, precious Bible,
Book by inspiration given;
Precious Bible, precious Bible,
Light to guide our souls to Heav’n!

Thou Book divine, thy pages shine
With Heav’n’s unfading glory;
Thou dost reveal to mortals here
The great redemption story.

Here law and love and wisdom stand
Revealed through bygone ages,
And children read a message sweet
Upon thy simple pages.

Untouched by time, or men’s assaults,
This Word remains unshaken,
And those who build upon this rock
Will never be forsaken.

—by Julia H. Johnston (1849-1919)

Order my steps in thy word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me. Psalm 119:133
