Verse 1: How precious is the Book divine, By inspiration giv’n! Bright as a lamp its precepts shine To guide my soul to heav’n.
Verse 2: It sweetly cheers my drooping heart, In this dark vale of tears; Light to my life it still imparts, And quells my rising fears.
Verse 3: This lamp, thru all the tedious night Of life, shall guide my way, Till I behold the clearer light Of an eternal day.
Chorus: Holy Book divine! Precious treasure mine! Lamp to my feet and a light to my way To guide me safely home.
