THE bible, the bible, the blessed old book,

We love, oh! we love on its pages to look,

It gives us bright hopes of a glorious rest,

A happified state in the land of the blest:

We love it; it tells of the grace of our God,

It gives us glad tidings to publish abroad,

And oh! it refreshes the sin burdened soul

To read of the Saviour in that bible old.

The Bible, the bible, assist us dear Lord

To treasure the precepts in thy holy word,

To learn from its pages the lessons of love,

And of wisdom and peace that come from above;

May we not be ashamed of thee or thy word,

For such thou hast taught us thou wilt not regard;

And O may we live so that when time is told,

We may not be condemned by that bible old.
