78 (7.7.7.7.) John Burton

Holy Bible, book Divine,

Precious treasure, thou art mine;

Mine to tell me whence I came;

Mine to teach me what I am.

Mine to chide me when I rove;

Mine to shew a Saviour's love;

Mine art thou to guide my feet —

Mine to judge, condemn, acquit.

Mine to comfort in distress,

If the Holy Spirit bless;

Mine to shew, by living faith,

Man can triumph over death.

Mine to tell of joys to come,

And the rebel sinner's doom.

O, thou precious book Divine,

Precious treasure, thou art mine!
