Though the cover is worn and the pages are torn,
and though places bear traces of tears,
yet more precious than gold is this book worn and old,
that can shatter and scatter my fears.
When I prayerfully look in this precious old book,as my eyes scan the pages I see:
many tokens of love from the father above, who is nearest and dearest to me.
This old book is my guide, tis a friend by my side, it will lighten and brighten my way.
And each promise I find soothes and gladdens my mind, as I read it and heed it today.
Whatever you have to sacrifice, what ever priorities you have to rearrange, read your bible every day!
