I See my Lord in the Bible

I see my Lord in the Bible

Whenever I chance to look

He is the theme of the Bible

The center and heart of the Book

He is the Rose of Sharon

The Lily fair

Whenever I open the Bible

The Lord of the Bible is there

Now He in the Book’s beginning

Gave the earth its form

He is the ark of safety

The bare and brunt of the storm

The burning bush of the desert

And the budding of Aaron’s rod

Whenever I open the Bible

I see the Son of God

The Lamb upon Mount Moriah

And the ladder from earth to sky,

The scarlet cord in the window

And the serpent lifted high.

The smitten rock of the desert

And the Shepherd with staff and crook,

The face of my Lord I discover

Whenever I open the Book.

He is the seed of the woman

The Saviour of virgin born.

He is the son of David,

Whom men rejected with scorn.

Ah, The Lord of eternal Glory

Whom John the apostle saw,

Yes, He is the Light of the Celestial City

The Lamb without spot or flaw.

The Bridegroom coming at midnight

For whom His people look.

Whenever I open the Bible,

I see my Lord in the Book.
