Lyrics

Wonderful Bi­ble, book of all ages,
Gift of our Fa­ther, sent from above,
Life ev­er­last­ing beams from its pages,
Peace beyond measure, mercy and love.

Refrain

Wonderful Bi­ble, book of sal­va­tion,
Telling of mercy, breathing of love;
Wonderful Bi­ble, God’s revelation,
Showing His children mansions above.

Wonderful Bi­ble, beau­ti­ful story,
Story of Je­sus, Sav­ior of men;
Dying for sinners, pleading in glo­ry,
Hear it with gladness, tell it again.

Refrain

Wonderful Bi­ble! none ever perish
Heeding its counsels, led by its light;
Every sweet promise, O let us cherish,
Till Hea­ven’s morning end earthly night.

Refrain

Wonderful Bi­ble, blessèd possession,
Let us uphold it, home and abroad;
Servants of Je­sus, this be our mission,
Send to the needy, tidings from God.
