Cling to the Bible

Verse 1:
Cling to the Bible, tho’ all else be taken;
Lose not its promises precious and sure;
Souls that are sleeping its echoes awaken,
Drink from the fountain, so peaceful, so pure.

Refrain:
Cling to the Bible!
Cling to the Bible!
Cling to the Bible,
Our Lamp and Guide.

Verse 2:
Cling to the Bible, this jewel, this treasure
Brings to us honor and saves fallen man;
Pearl whose great value no mortal can measure,
Seek and secure it, O soul, while you can.

Verse 3:
Lamp for the feet that in byways have wander’d,
Guide for the youth that would otherwise fall;
Hope for the sinner whose best days are squander’d;
Staff for the aged, and best book of all.

M.J. Smith/J.R. Murray
