Holy Bible, Book Divine
Words by John Burton
Music by William B. Bradbury

2 Timothy 3:16
"All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable
for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness."


          Holy Bible, Book divine,
          Precious treasure, thou art mine;
          Mine to tell me whence I came;
          Mine to teach me what I am;

          Mine to chide me when I rove;
          Mine to show a Savior's love;
          Mine thou art to guide and guard;
          Mine to punish or reward;

          Mine to comfort in distress,
          Suffering in this wilderness;
          Mine to show, by living faith,
          Man can triumph over death;

          Mine to tell of joys to come,
          And the rebels sinner's doom;
          O thou Holy Book divine,
          Precious treasure, thou art mine.
