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.


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.


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.


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.
