Lyrics

Go, stu­dy the Bi­ble; God’s Word is a light
That bright­ly will shine in your way;
’Twill warn you of dan­gers, ’twill lead you aright,
From time to eter­ni­ty’s day.

Refrain

Go, stu­dy the Bi­ble! Go, read it with pray­er;
And look for the trea­sures of love hid­den there;
Search well thro’ its pag­es for Hea­ven’s bright ore,
As years hast­en on­ward, we’ll prize it still more.

Go, stu­dy the Bi­ble; sweet mo­ments em­ploy
In hear­ing the voice of the Lord;
In sor­row, a com­fort; in ser­vice, a joy;
In bat­tle, a con­quer­ing sword.

Refrain

Go, stu­dy the Bi­ble; a store­house com­plete,
A ta­ble our Fa­ther hath spread,
Where wis­dom, and mer­cy and love ev­er meet;
There ga­ther the soul’s dai­ly bread.

Refrain

Go, stu­dy the Bi­ble; the ma­rin­er’s chart
Will guide him across the dark wave;
But pre­cious, more pre­cious this Book to the heart,
It tells us that Je­sus will save.
