THE BIBLE IS A BOOK OF CHRIST
God gave His holy, inspired Word
For only one great end,
The prophets and apostles too
Reveal the sinner's Friend.
The Bible is a Book of Christ,
It only speaks of Him:
On every page it shows us Christ,
It only speaks of Him.
The prophecies of old record
God's wondrous, mighty deeds:
Those deeds of power and of grace
Set forth the woman's Seed.
The prophets all reveal our Lord,
As Prophet, Priest and King:
The types the great redemption show,
Christ's blood and grace now bring.
"Behold the Lamb!" the Baptist said,
The sin-atoning One:
As it was promised long before,
God's Son as man has come!
Our Substitute obeyed the law,
Then died and rose again:
And in His Word our Savior said,
"Rejoice! I come again!"
(Tune: My Faith Has Found a Resting Place)
