Set forth in yonder precious book,
Its cover worn, its pages turned.
Ensconced on the shelf in reverence
Is written advice to suffice a man
‘Til his way he sees clear to heaven.
It tells of selfish pride and lust,
And sins that grow like leaven.
It warns of pitfalls ahead of you,
Each prayer of protection is given,
Alas the book is useless if unopened!
It can sit on that shelf dusted bare.
God’s word is to you a free repast,
Set out for all to digest and grow.
Reach out and open its pages wise
And learn God’s plan of Salvation.
