Sacred Songs and Solos Lyrics
First Line: Cling to the Bible, though all else be taken,
Cling to the Bible, though all else be taken ;
Lose not its precepts so precious and pure ;
Souls that are sleeping its tidings awaken :
Life from the dead in its promises sure.
Cling to the Bible ! Cling to the Bible !
Cling to the Bible---- Our Lamp and our Guide !
2 Cling to the Bible ! this 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 !
3 Lamp for the feet that in by-ways
have wandered, [otherwise fall ;
Guide for the youth that would
Hope for the sinner whose life has
Staff for the aged, and best book of all.
