I give thanks for my Bible,
The precious Word of God.
It saves and keeps and satisfies
Along the path I trod.
This Book has been my Companion,
Oh, the times it has comforted me.
It has encouraged my heart,
And made me glad,
And from sin has set me free.
Of all the books that I have read,
My Bible alone stands tall,
Though books I’ll have until I die,
This Book excels them all.
So I’ll take my Bible where’re I go,
It will be my constant Guide,
When friends forsake me,
And life’s hopes fail me,
In this Book I will confide.
