I own a priceless treasure,
’Tis precious to my heart,
In time of joy or sorrow,
A message ’twill impart:
A glory gilds its pages,
And shines upon the way,
The dear old Book
Grows sweeter day by day!

Refrain

’Tis precious to my heart,
And a blessing ’twill impart,
It teaches me of Him
Who leads the way;
And I love it more and more,
As I read its pag­es o’er,
For the dear old Book
Grows sweeter day by day!

It tells me of a Savior
Whose love is all divine,
The gift of free salvation,
And joys which may be mine;
And all His words of promise,
Which cheer me on the way,
The dear old Book
Grows sweeter day by day!

Refrain

Its words of holy counsel
Are like a guiding light,
To turn my feet from evil
And point me to the right;
’Twill bless me on my journey
Along the upward way,
The dear old Book
Grows sweeter day by day!

Refrain
