Holy Bible, Book Divine
Words: John Burton, Sr.
Music: Mercy | Louis Moreau Gottschalk
1. Holy Bible, Book divine,
Precious treasure, thou art mine:
Mine to tell me whence I came,
Mine to teach me what I am;

2. Mine to chide me when I rove,
Mine to show a Savior’s love;
Mine thou art to guide and guard,
Mine to punish or reward;

3. Mine to comfort in distress;
Suff’ring in this wilderness;
Mine to show, by living faith,
Man can triumph over death;

4. Mine to tell of joys to come
And the rebel sinner’s doom:
O thou holy Book divine,
Precious treasure, thou art mine!
