The Bible Says

“The Bible says” — what wonderful words,
What music to my ears.
Words of hope to comfort me,
Lest I be moved to tears.

Words of love to chasten me,
Lest I be prone to hate.
Words of joy to gladden me,
Lest sorrow be my fate.

Words of faith to strengthen me,
Lest doubting fill my heart.
Words of truth — “the Bible says”.
What peace those words impart!

Oh, how I love Your law!
It is my meditation all the day.
(Psalm 119:97)
