The Family Bible

There's a precious old book which I read every day,
For it cheers me and helps me along life's way,
And it warns me whenever my spirit would stray;
'Tis the dear old family Bible.

O the dear old family Bible!
My precious family Bible!
How it comforts my soul
When the sorrow-waves roll,
This dear old family Bible!

There's a wonderful storehouse by Christians possessed,
Which supplies all my needs when by foes oppressed,
Gives me comfort and joy, perfect rapture and rest;
'Tis the dear old family Bible.

There's a precious old book which I value and love,
For it tells of a beautiful home above,
And of Jesus who died His great mercy to prove;
'Tis the dear old family Bible.

—by James Rowe (1865–1933)

And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 2 Timothy 3:15
