Praise God for His Word!
From its pages divine
Came the light of His love
To this poor heart of mine:
I had wandered afar
In the byways of sin,
When the light of His truth
To my heart entered in.


Praise God for His grace
Which its pages unfold!
For the story of love
Which will ne­ver grow old!
For the light on life’s pathway
Which streams from its pages!
Praise God for His Word,
Blessèd Book of the Ages!

Praise God for His Word;
For the heavenly light
It is sending afar
Into sin’s darksome night;
For the hope which it gives,
Where before was despair,
For the Hea­ven revealed,
And the way leading there!


Praise God for His Word!
Not a promise shall fail;
Whatsoe’er may oppose,
Still its truth will prevail:
’Tis the Word of our God
And fore’er must endure;
Earth and Hea­ven may pass,
But it standeth secure.
