I cherish my copy of the Holy Bible
Its words are engrained in my heart.
From the truths and wisdom in its pages
I am determined never to depart.
I believe its accounts of the Creation
Of how the human race appeared on earth
I cannot buy the fiction of evolution
Only the explanation in Genesis has worth.
Then thereís the story of the great flood
That was sent by God to wipe out man
I surely am thankful saving the Noahís
Became part of Godís saving plan.
I love to read about Daniel in the lionís den
And the Hebrew children in the furnace fire
Reading about all of the Biblical heroes
Is something of which I never will tire.
I read where they threw old Jeremiah in a well
He was a fearless prophet of old
We need more like this man of God
Who will preach the Word so bold.
In my copy of the Holy Bible I can
Trace the ancestry of Jesus earthly kin
And read how Jesus resisted Satan
When he tried to get Godís Son to sin.
When I get to the part of the book
That tells how our Savior had to die
That is when the story gets real serious
And I just want to stop and cry.
But my heart again begins to rejoice
When I read how the women came to weep
But instead their sadness turned to joy
Because the tomb our Savior could not keep.
The trials and tribulations of the early church
The Bible is faithful to record
So that when we are tested and tried we can
Learn from them and not forsake our Lord.
Old Paul, the Bible says, was shipwrecked
And he was beaten and left for dead
But from his calling to preach the Gospel
This once enemy of Christ never fled.
In the Book of Revelation we are told
Jesus will return to earth one day
To take home the Church, His bride
Who from the Bibleís teaching did not stray.
The Holy Bible has long been a best-seller
But too often it has been allowed to gather dust
Take up this precious Word of God
All its instructions and promises you can trust.
The books man has written are numerous
To preserve them we endeavor
They will all perish with time
But the Word of God will last forever.

Wonderful poem, Thomas. I am so thankful God gave us His "Owners Manual for Life." God bless you. In Christ's Love, Julia
The Lord promised me years ago that "I would know His Word". That was when I really started reading and memorizing Scripture, for I knew that to be His Word. It has become so much more than the words on the pages of my bible as He has given depth to its meaning; tempered it with His Wisdom from above and painted it with an Artist's Hand upon every thread of my being. I know you know what I mean. Beautifully written, Thomas! Blessings, Jody
