Today's hymn, "How Precious Is the Book Divine" (#285) is from "The Lutheran Hymnal" (c) 1941 Concordia Publishing House.
How precious is the Book Divine, By inspiration giv'n!
Bright as a lamp its doctrines shine To guide our souls to heav'n.
Its light, descending from above Our gloomy world to cheer,
Displays a Savior's boundless love And brings His glories near.
It shows to man his wand'ring ways And where his feet have trod,
And brings to view the matchless grace Of a forgiving God.
O'er all the straight and narrow way Its radiant beams are cast;
A light whose never weary ray Grows brightest at the last.
Soli Deo Gloria
