Clara M. Brooks (1882–1980)


By the Word of God the worlds were made,
And are held in place by His com­mands;
All the grass­es wi­ther and the flow­ers fade,
But His truth for­ev­er stands.


Oh, the pre­cious Bi­ble, coun­sel for the soul,
Path the faith­ful saints and mar­tyrs trod;
Settled in the hea­vens, true while ag­es roll,
Changeless as the throne of God.

More to be de­sired than ho­ney sweet,
Richer are its trea­sures far, than gold;
Like a brill­iant light, it shines to guide my feet,
Never grows its sto­ry old.


Thy eter­nal law is my de­light,
Strength and dai­ly man­na to my soul;
’Tis my me­di­ta­tion all the day and night,
Balm to make the wound­ed whole.


Stream of life from Hea­ven, crys­tal pure,
Shed thy cool­ing fresh­ness over me;
Let my thirst­ing spir­it, till I thirst no more,
Drink thy spark­ling wa­ters free.
