Man reading the Bible.

The Book

          You'll do well to take a look
          Within the pages of The Book
          To find out where you're coming from;
          To learn about God and His Son.

          Inspired by the Holy Ghost
          Guarded by the hallowed host;
          Penned by men in bygone ages -
          Prophets, poets, scribes and sages.

          A record of God's awesome deeds,
          Of human weaknesses and greed;
          Of promises I Am has kept;
          Of tears our Lord and Savior wept.

          Helping souls to grow; mature
          Whilst making our election sure.
          Teaching us what not to do -
          What is false and what is true.

          The blueprint of God's glorious plan
          For the heavens and for man.
          Giving a glimpse into Christ's mind,
          Restoring sight to souls born blind.

          A Light unto God's children's feet
          Each word illuminated; sweet,
          Filling men with love and hope;
          Helping those who read it cope.

          The Word of God will guide us on
          Until the final song's been sung;
          Until the end of man and beast;
          Until all life on Earth has ceased.
