Cling to the Bible, though all else be taken;
Lose not it’s precepts so precious and pure;
Souls that are sleeping, it’s tidings awaken;
Life from the dead in its promises sure.
Cling to the Bible ! cling to the
Cling to the Bible ! Our Lamp
and our Guide.
Cling to the Bible ! the Jewel and treasure;
Brings life eternal, and saves fallen man:
Surely its value no mortal can measure
Seek for its blessing O soul while you can.
Lamp for the feet that in by ways have wandered,
Guide for the youth that would other wise fall;
Hope for the sinner whose life has been squandered,
Staff for the aged and best seek of all.
