I find my Lord in the book…

I find my Lord in the Bible wherever I chance to look
He is the theme of the Bible, the center and heart of the book

He is the rose of Sharon, He is the lily fair
Wherever I open my Bible, the Lord of the book is there

He, at the books beginning, gave to the earth its form
He is the ark of shelter bearing the brunt of the storm

The burning bush of the desert, the budding of Aaron’s rod
Wherever I look in the Bible, I see the Son of God

The ram upon Mount Moriah, the ladder from the sky
The scarlet cord in the window, and the serpent lifted high

The smitten rock in the desert, the shepherd with staff and crook
The face of my Lord I discovered, wherever I look in the book

He is the seed of the woman, the Savior virgin born
He is the Son of David with whom men rejected with scorn

His garments of grace and beauty, the stately Heir endeck
Yet He is a priest forever, for He is of Melchizedek

Lord of eternal glory whom John the apostle saw
Light of the golden city, lamb without spot or flaw

Bridegroom coming at midnight for whom the virgin’s look
Wherever I open my Bible, I find my Lord in the book
