68 (C.M.) Isaac Watts

How precious is the book divine,

By inspiration giv'n!

Bright as a lamp its doctrines shine

To guide our souls to heav'n.

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,

'Til we behold the brighter light

Of an eternal day.

Hymn #67 Hymn #69
