Sacred Songs and Solos Lyrics
Hymn No.266

First Line: Thanks for Thy Word, O blessed Redeemer,

Thanks for Thy Word, O blessed Redeemer !
Open our eyes its beauty to see ;
Grant us Thy grace to study it wisely,
Close every heart to all but Thee.

Thanks for the Bible, offering so freely
Pardon and peace to all who believe ;
Help us, O Lord, its counsel to follow,
Meekly by faith its truth receive.

2 Thanks for Thy Word of precept and
Lamp to our feet and light to our way,
Points us afar where pleasures immortal
Bloom in Thine own bright realm of day.

3 Blessed are they who keep its commandments,
They shall abide for ever with Thee ;
Close by the clear and beautiful river,
Sharing the fruits of life's fair tree.
