Youíve spent some time with many books.
Have you given any second looks?
Have you told your story far and wide?
One book says where youíll reside.

Not in a store to check it out.
The Bible says it carries clout.
The future of each righteous one.
Who personally know Gods own Son.

Itís kept up in a Heavenly room.
And what it says lets not assume.
It gives the names of people right.
Who have a faith thatís in plain sight.

Whoíve said that Jesus is my Lord.
And lived with Him in one accord.
Who share their faith when Spirit led.
Who know their Savior is not dead.

This world is full of books you see.
With many stories drenched with glee.
That takes you to some far off place.
But fail to tell you of Godís grace.

These books are truly reading fun.
Some lift up, some make you run.
Some will scare and some will soar.
Most will leave you wanting more.

Iíll tell about the Book of Life.
Full of names, husband and wife.
And in the end the entries see.
God will name whoís been made free.

So to the library you should go.
Check out the Bible; It will show.
A future Book that tells us all.
Of where weíll spend eternities call.

I do love poems, and I'm always in awe of people who can write them. I enjoyed this one, and I agree, the Bible is the best of them all.

There is nothing new under the Sun, and every book written since, is a copy of some sort--of the one and only.

Enjoyed this. A message we should all remember.

This is a beautiful poem about the best book ever written. I've never thought of it as a library book before, but how wonderful it is there for those who can't afford one or are just browsing and happen upon the book to change one's afterlife.

A couple of little editing notes Gods and Lets should both have an apostrophe before the s.

Thank you for sharing this beautiful poem. It would make a neat plaque for the door of a library; especially could see it on my church library's walls. Good job.

I agree w/ Shann about the neat idea of seeing the Bible as a library! You might want to experiment w/ some rhyming variations such as "slant rhyme"--e.g. inexact rhymes like "cliff" w/ "laugh." Nice job. :)
