O Savior, I know Thou art mine,
Thy Word have I hid in my heart;
I know all its precepts divine,
And from them we’ll never depart.
Then give me the Bible forever;
Its truth in my heart now I hide;
There’s naught can compel us to sever,
O search-light of truth, be my guide.
Thy search-light of truth has illumed
The path once so rugged and long;
I tread not in darkness and gloom,
Each day I am journeying on.
Each day all the way grows more bright,
I know not its terror and gloom;
I know that its beautiful light
Will shine even thro’ the dark tomb.
