Lyrics

Get back to the Bi­ble, the Gos­pel of love,
Where Je­sus the Sav­ior draws near;
The Word of our Fa­ther draws Hea­ven above,
His pro­mises com­fort and cheer.

Refrain

Go back to the Bi­ble, the good old Bi­ble,
The Word that in­deed makes free;
Get back to the Bi­ble, the good old Bi­ble,
A light to your feet it will be.

Get back to the Bi­ble, that wis­dom im­parts,
A trea­sure for age and for youth;
Its pre­cepts un­fail­ing bind close on your hearts,
Receive them in faith and in truth.

Refrain

Get back to the Bi­ble, our bea­con of light,
Our guide ov­er life’s trou­bled sea;
Our pil­lar of fire thro’ the ga­ther­ing night,
That leads, bless­èd Sav­ior, to Thee.
