Sunflowers, Zinnias and How precious is the book divine

How precious is the book divine,
By inspiration given!
Bright as a lamp its doctrines shine,
To guide our souls to heaven.

O’er all the strait and narrow way
Its radiant beams are cast;
A light whose never-weary ray
Grows brightest at the last.

It sweetly cheers our drooping hearts,
In this dark vale of tears;
Life, light, and joy it still imparts,
And quells our rising fears.

This lamp, through all the tedious night
Of life, shall guide our way,
Till we behold the clearer light
Of an eternal day.

John Fawcett

  1. A beautiful picture, and a great hymn to match. Today is the 260 anniversary of the birth of the song's author, John Fawcett. And if you enjoy reading about our hymns and gospel songs, I invite you to check out my daily blog on the subject, Wordwise Hymns.
