    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!
