18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. 19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. 20 Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? 21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe. 22 For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom: 23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness; 24 But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. 25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.(KJV)

1. How precious is the Book Divine, 
By inspiration given! 
Bright as a lamp its doctrines shine 
To guide our souls to heaven. 

2. It’s light, descending from above 
Our gloomy world to cheer, 
Displays a Savior’s boundless love 
And brings his glories near. 

3. It shows to man his wandering ways 
And where his feet have trod, 
And brings to view the matchless grace 
Of a forgiving God. 

4. O’er all the straight and narrow way 
Its radiant beams are cast; 
A light whose never weary ray 
Grows brightest at the last. 

5. It sweetly cheers our drooping hearts 
In this dark vale of tears, 
Life, light, and joy it still imparts 
And quells our rising fears. 

6. This lamp through all the tedious night 
Of life shall guide our way 
Till we behold the clearer light 
Of an eternal day.
