1. Excellency of the Bible. C. M.
What endless glory shines !
For these celestial lines.
Exhaustless riches find :
And lasting as the mind.
And yields a free repast ;
Invite the longing taste.
Spreads heavenly peace around;
Attend the blissful sound.
My ever dear delight;
And still increasing light.
Be thou for ever near;
2. Value of the Bible. 1 HOLY Bible, Book divine ; ;
Precious treasure! thou art mine: Mine to fell me whence I came;
Mine to teach me what I am: 2 Mine to chide me when I rove;
Mine to shew a Savior's love:
Mine to judge, condemn, acquit: 3 Mine to comfort in distress,
If the Holy Spirit bless:
Man can triumph over death! 4 Mine to tell of joys to come,
And the rebel-sinner's doom :
3. The Bible precious. 8, 7.
Does the Word of God afford !
Let the world account me poor;
Having this I need no more.
Here my hungry soul enjoys;
On a dying Christ I feed,
4. The Bible precious. C. M. 1 HOW precious is the book divine,
By inspiration given!
To guide our souls to heaven.
In this dark vale of tears;
And quells our rising fears. 3 This lamp, through all the tedious night
Of life, shall guide our way,
Rippon. 5. Power of the Gospel. L. M. 1 THIS is the word of truth and love,
Sent to the nations from above; Jehovah here resolves to show
What his almighty grace can do. 2 This remedy did wisdom find,
To heal diseases of the mind;
Restore the ruin'd creature, man. 3 The Gospel bids the dead revive;
Sinners obey the voice, and live;
And hearts of stone are turn'd to flesh.
The Gospel strikes a heav'nly light;
souls. 5 Lions, and beasts of savage name,
Put on the nature of the Lamb;
