The Christian and his Bible

I find my Lord in the Bible
Wherever I chance to look.
He is the theme of the Bible
The Center and Heart of the Book.
He is the Rose of Sharon
He is the Lily fair
Wherever I open my Bible
The Lord of the Bible is there.

He, at the Book's beginning
Gave to the earth its form
He is the Ark of shelter
Bearing the brunt of the storm.
The Burning Bush of the desert
The budding of Aaron's Rod.
Wherever I look in the Bible
I see the Son of God.

The Ram upon Mount Moriah
The Ladder from earth to sky
The Scarlet Cord in the window
And the Serpent lifted high.
The Smitten Rock in the desert
The Shepherd with staff and crook
The face of my Lord I discover
Wherever I open the Book.

He is the Seed of the woman,
The Saviour, virgin-born.
He is the Son of David
Whom men rejected with scorn
His garments of Grace and Beauty
The stately Aaron deck
Yet He is a Priest forever
For He is Melchizedek.

He's Lord of Eternal Glory
Whom John in a vision saw.
Light of the Golden City
Lamb without spot or flaw.
Bridegroom coming at midnight
For whom the virgins look
Wherever I open my Bible
I find my Lord in the Book.

—Author unknown

For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Hebrews 4:12
