For years the Scriptures have been taught
From pulpits, roadsides, rich and poor abodes
By men who knew freedom, men who were bought
By men with pure motives, men with evil intent.
Down through the centuries Scriptures were heard
There were some who listened, some with deaf ears
Some who believed all, some questioned the Word
Still down through all history the Bible it came.
To great discredit some of the teachings were wrong
When man used the Scripture to further their cause
Twisted, manipulated and piece milled it along
Proof man’s heart can be evil and misuse anything.
The glory, comfort, understanding that rains down
When man sets to teach the truth from the Bible
In every city, by-pass, every village and town
By those who take responsibility for what they teach.
No other document, no other such proof
Has challenged, inspired, revealed, explained
Been misquoted, used, freely given and kept aloof
Than the Holy Bible which is still alive to this day.
Regardless of education, status or wealth
The Scripture can be absorbed by all hearts
Those who are healthy those in ill health
When the Holy Spirit guides the reader along.
Don’t take it lightly, don’t deny its power
The layers of truth in the Scripture found
Hear it, listen, find strength for the hour
For your own salvation take it to heart.
