Poetry: The Bible

Love this precious book, the Bible
Guard it with a zealous care
All we see of life and glory,
All we hear of Christ is there.
Some would tell me, ‘Tis a fable
Full of legend rich and rare."
Book of God, His revelation
All I know of Christ is there.
Read it daily, search it freely,
Seek its beauties bright and fair.
Learn its wealth of grace and glory,
All I have of Christ is there.
Soon amid those heavenly regions,
Free from all earth’s din and care;
All it told of Christ is there.
