Hymn: TLH 285, st. 1-3,6: How Precious Is the Book Divine

Hymnary.org Organ Audio


1. How precious is the Book Divine, 
By inspiration given! 
Bright as a lamp its doctrines shine 
To guide our souls to heaven. 

2. It’s light, descending from above 
Our gloomy world to cheer, 
Displays a Savior’s boundless love 
And brings his glories near. 

3. It shows to man his wandering ways 
And where his feet have trod, 
And brings to view the matchless grace 
Of a forgiving God. 

6. This lamp through all the tedious night 
Of life shall guide our way 
Till we behold the clearer light 
Of an eternal day.
