Hymn: TLH 285, st. 1-4: How Precious Is the Book Divine
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.
4. O’er all the straight and narrow way
Its radiant beams are cast;
A light whose never weary ray
Grows brightest at the last.
