     7 The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple. 8 The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes. 9 The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether. 10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. 11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.(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.
