Sunday Hymns - How Precious is the Book Divine

How precious is the book divine,
by inspiration given;
bright as a lamp its pages shine
to guide our souls to heaven.

It sweetly cheers our fainting hearts
in this dark vale of tears;
life, light and joy it still imparts,
and quells our rising fears.

This lamp shall guide our steps aright
and cheer us on our way,
till we behold the clearer light
of an eternal day.

Divine Instructor, gracious Lord,
be thou ever near;
teach me to love thy sacred Word
and view my Savior there.

-Words, verses 1-3: John Fawcett, 1782;

verse 4: Anne Steele, 1760

Your comments are such a blessing to me.

"Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near. " Hebrews 10:23-25
