From Genesis to Malachi
Matthew to Revelation
Old Testament to New
Passed down through generations

God’s promises and truth
All contained within
From the Garden of Eden
To the consequence of sin

Jesus walks its pages
And dies to conquer wrong
Proverbs teach us wisdom
Psalms gives David’s song

Everything inside this book
Comes directly from above
It show us all God’s plan
And promises His love

It’s a manual for life
It tells us how to act
Every word a blueprint
An irrefutable fact

His Word should ever be
Right there by our side
To lead us as we walk
Our true and perfect guide

Composition Date: April 7th, 2009

Holli’s Notes:
I wanted to write about the grandeur of God’s book and the importance of it in our lives, even now, thousands of years after it was begun.
