Give Me the Bible

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.

Refrain

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.

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.

Refrain

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.

Refrain

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.

Refrain

Priscilla Jane Owens
1829-1907

    “that light alone the path of peace can show…”

  2. I have never heard this hymn.
    “Hold up faith’s lamp to show my Savior near”.
    another amen!

  3. “Show me the light from Heavens shining portal”..yes!
    They play the last verse of this song at the end of my tv bible study in Romans. I had to look up this hymn to read the whole lyrics….Beautiful, inspiring words.
