No Book is Like the Bible

No book is like the Bible,
For childhood, youth and age; Our duty, plain and simple, We find on every page.

It came by inspiration,
A light to guide our way,
A voice from Him who gave it,

Reproving when we stray.

No book is like the Bible,

The blessed book we love,
The pilgrim’s chart of glory,
It leads to God above.

It tells of man’s creation,
His sad, primeval fall;
It tells of man’s redemption,
Through Christ, who died for all;

In sacred words of wisdom
It bids us watch and pray,
And early come to Jesus,
The Life, the Truth, the Way.

O, let us love the Bible,
And praise it more and more;
Our life is like a shadow,
Our days will soon be o’er;

But if we closely follow
The counsel God has given,
We then may hope with angels
To sing His praise in Heaven.

[Fanny Crosby]

John 1:14 ... And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

John 14:6 ... Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Psalm 119:105 ... Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
