The Words of Life - A Poem

Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

The Words of Life - A Poem
I see an old Bible, wrinkled and worn
When it is preached, faith can be born
The Sinner's heart melts, the work is done
Faith grabs hold, the faith-walk has begun
Hearing is granted, obedience resides
To Christ flees the saint, in His presence He abides
The Bible is alive, its words are breathing force
In its hearing weak faith is strengthened
Resolve resumes its course
The saint faces trials, the Bible in his hand
Eyes raised heavenward, on God's word He does stand
Pages stained with tears, the Bible is a friend
Its truth unchanged, broken hearts it can mend
The Spirit speaks forth, pointing the way
See the Living Savior, become His today
Worn it may be, the words are timeless and true
Open your Bible and take in what God speaks to you
