The wonderful word of God

This old Sunday School chorus came to mind the other day. Between my mother and I we managed to remember all of the words:

I have a precious Book, it's the word of God
It's the only book that God has given
As I read God speaks to me, I see Christ and Calvary
The wonderful word of God

Forever it will stand as the ages roll
It's the living and eternal Word
It's my guiding light each day, and without it I would stray
The wonderful word of God

Dear Lord may I each day read Thy precious Word
May I love it and obey it too
May I grow to be like Thee, may my friends see Christ in me
In Jesus' name, amen.

I've only found two other references to it online, Perth Gospel Hall in Scotland, and this blog from Washington state USA.
