Scripture Sureties


Tune: St Hugh

('Lord, teach us how to pray aright')

2 Timothy 3 v.15-17


Here you may know, now even you

The holy scriptures true

They are able to make you wise

And they contain no lies


Make you wise unto salvation

Revealed to each nation

Salvation through faith which is in

Christ Jesus, without sin


All scripture is given, here se

By God's inspirings free

For He has breathed His living word

He ever is the Lord


And all scripture profitable

It be to humans all

For doctrine, teaching, reproof too

And correction anew


And for instruction and training

In righteousness, each thing

That we may be perfect, mature

And in Him may grow more


Thoroughly equipped, furnishéd

With Christ our living Head

Unto all good works, glorify

Christ, His words ne'er shall die
