Thanks To God We Give


Thanks to God we give for the blessed word
That reveals His gracious will;
‘Twas voice of love when our hearts it stirred,
‘Tis the sweetest music still.

Refrain:
Blessed Bible, everlasting word,
Lamp of life to light our way!
May the rays divine over all the nations shine,
Till we reach the perfect day!

Never came a draught to a thirsty lip,
Like the water of this well;
And the soul that seeks from its depths to dip,
Finds a joy that none can tell. [Refrain]

‘Tis the best of books, ’tis the book divine,
’tis the very word of truth;
There is comfort here when the years decline,
There is strength for tender youth. [Refrain]
