Full Text

1 Get back to the Bible, the Gospel of love,
Where Jesus the Savior draws near;
The Word of our Father draws Heaven above,
His promises comfort and cheer.

Refrain:
Go back to the Bible, the good old Bible,
The Word that indeed makes free;
Get back to the Bible, the good old Bible,
A light to your feet it will be.

2 Get back to the Bible, that wisdom imparts,
A treasure for age and for youth;
Its precepts unfailing bind close on your hearts,
Receive them in faith and in truth. [Refrain]

3 Get back to the Bible, our beacon of light,
Our guide over life’s troubled sea;
Our pillar of fire thro’ the gathering night,
That leads, blessèd Savior, to Thee. [Refrain]

Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
