Verse 1
Cling to the Bible, tho' 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.

Chorus
Cling to the Bible! (3ce)
Our Lamp and our Guide!

Verse 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!

Chorus
Cling to the Bible! (3ce)
Our Lamp and our Guide!

Verse 3
Lamp for the feet that in by-ways have wander'd,
Guide for the youth that would otherwise fall;
Hope for the sinner whose life has been squander'd,
Staff for the aged, and best book of all.

Chorus
Cling to the Bible! (3ce)
Our Lamp and our Guide!
