THE HOLY BIBLE
The Holy Bible is God’s love letter to us.
It is God’s words given to men to write down for us to read.
It is our guide book.
It provides strength and comfort.
It encourages us when we are doing right
and convicts us when we are doing wrong.
God’s Word never changes.
Century follows century – it still stands.
Dynasty succeeds dynasty – it still stands.
Empires rise and fall and are forgotten – it still stands.
Kings are crowned and uncrowned – it still stands.
Storms of hate swirl about it – it still stands.
Atheists rail against it – it still stands.
Profane, prayerless punsters caricature it – it still stands.
Unbelief abandons it – it still stands.
Thunder bolts of wrath smite it – it still stands.
The flames are kindled about it – it still stands.
Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.
The Bible Stands
The Bible stands like a rock undaunted
’Mid the raging storms of time;
Its pages burn with the truth eternal,
And they glow with a light sublime.
The Bible stands though the hills may tumble,
It will firmly stand when the earth shall crumble;
I will plant my feet on its firm foundation,
For the Bible stands.
The Bible stands like a mountain towering
Far above the works of men;
Its truth by none ever was refuted,
And destroy it they never can.
The Bible stands and it will forever,
When the world has passed away;
By inspiration it has been given,
All its precepts I will obey.
The Bible stands every test we give it,
For its Author is divine;
By grace alone I expect to live it,
And to prove and to make it mine.
