I love God’s Word so precious,
It tells of His love for me,
It tells how Jesus suffered,
And died on Calvary.

Refrain

I will hide God’s Word in my heart each day,
That against Him I might not sin;
It will blessing bring, make the joy-bells ring,
If I hide God’s Word in my heart.

I love God’s Word of pardon,
It tells me of sins forgiv’n;
It brings sweet peace ne’er ending,
And hope on the joys of Heav’n.

Refrain

I love God’s Word victorious,
It tells of the conquering Lord,
Who rose from death triumphant,
According to God’s own Word.

Refrain

I love God’s Word of promise,
Of Him who shall come again,
Of that glad day when Jesus
As king of the earth shall reign.
