Words & Mu­sic: Ro­bert Hark­ness, 1921 (🔊 pdf nwc).

Robert Harkness (1880–1961)


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


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.


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


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.
