Have You Found the Bible?

Have you found the Bible
  That Josiah found?
Have you delved for treasure
  In that holy ground?
Have you proved its pledges
  Gloriously true?
Have you found the Bible?
  Has the Book found you?

Have you found the Bible
  Reaching to you heart?
Has it touched the fountain
  Where the teardrops start?
Has it bathed your spirit
  In its cleansing dew?
Have you found the Bible?
  Has the Book found you?

Have you found the Bible
  Helping in your work?
Does it give you courage
  Not to faint nor shirk?
Is it strength for all things
  You are set to do?
Have you found the Bible?
  Has the Book found you?

Have you found the Bible
  Ever giving light?
Does it cheer the darkness
  Of the gloomly night?
When the troubles thicken
  Does it pull you through?
Have you found the Bible?
  Has the Book found you?

—by Amos R. Well (1862-1933)

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