                 “My Old Bible”
 
 
                        Though the cover is warn
                      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.
 
                      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 the mind
                      As I read it and heed it each day.
 
                     To the Book I will cling,
                     Of its worth I will sing,
                     Though great losses and crosses be mine;
                     For I cannot despair,
                       Though surrounded by care,
                     While possessing this blessing Divine.
