The Book of Books

God's Word is like a hammer
That breaketh the rock in twain;
I lamp to guide our footsteps,
And a light on the stormy main;
A sword that has two edges,
And a mirror ourselves to see
O yes, this is the Book of books, The B-I-B-L-E!

'Tis living seed that groweth
When into the heart received:
Like milk and meat will cause to grow,
Those who have on Christ believed;
Like water it will cleanse use,
From defilement will set us free
O yes, this is the Book of books, The B-I-B-L-E!

—by W. B. Mackie; second verse by Alfred P. Gibbs

Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces? Jeremiah 23:29
