O changeless Word of life and light,
A perfect rule to guide me,
I take thy counsels, trust thy truth,
And in my heart I hide thee.

Refrain

Precious Bible, precious Bible,
Book by inspiration given;
Precious Bible, precious Bible,
Light to guide our souls to Heav’n!

Thou Book divine, thy pages shine
With Heav’n’s unfading glory;
Thou dost reveal to mortals here
The great redemption story.

Refrain

Here law and love and wisdom stand
Revealed through bygone ages,
And children read a message sweet
Upon thy simple pages.

Refrain

Untouched by time, or men’s assaults,
This Word remains unshaken,
And those who build upon this rock
Will never be forsaken.
