My own dear Bible ! How I love
On these fair leaves to look ! My friend, my guide to realms above,
My bright, my golden book!
In early life it touched my heart,
It gave me eyes to see ;
My own loved book and me!
To silent rooms and shady bowers
The cherished page 1 bear ;
Companion of my prayer.
Its treasures to record ;
My Saviour, King, and Lord. What heavenly kindness in his face,
What beauty in his crown! O best of books ! wherein such grace,
Such love to man is shown.
