66. Book of Life

1 Book of grace, and book of glory!
Gift of God to age and youth;
Wondrous in thy sacred story,
Bright, bright with truth,
Wondrous in thy sacred story,
Bright, bright with truth.

2 Book of love! in accents tender,
Speaking unto such as we;
May it lead us, Lord, to render
All, all to thee,
May it lead us, Lord, to render
All, all to thee.

3 Book of hope! the spirit, sighing,
Consolation finds in thee,
As it hears the Savior crying—
"Come, come to me,"
As it hears the Savior crying—
"Come, come to me."

4 Book of life! when we, reposing,
Bid farewell to friends we love,
Give us for the life then closing,
Life, life above,
Give us for the life then closing,
Life, life above.
