EN 1665 Give Me the Bible
#tag:

Ps.119.30
Versi 1
1
Give me the Bible, star of gladness gleaming,
To cheer the wand‘rer lone and tempest tossed;
No storm can hide that radiance peaceful beaming,
Since Jesus came to seek and save the lost.
Give me the Bible, holy message shining;
Thy light shall guide me in the narrow way;
Precept and promise, law and love combining,
Till night shall vanish in eternal day.
2
Give me the Bible, when my heart is broken,
When sin and grief have filled my soul with fear;
Give me the precious words by Jesus spoken,
Hold up faith‘s lamp to show my Savior near.
3
Give me the Bible, all my steps enlighten,
Teach me the danger of these realms below;
That lamp of safety o‘er the gloom shall brighten,
That light alone the path of peace can show.
4
Give me the Bible, lamp of life immortal,
Hold up that splendor by the open grave;
Show me the light from Heaven‘s shining portal,
Show me the glory gilding Jordan‘s wave.
