The Bible Lives!

The Bible -- It Lives! 
By O. Wood (The Bible Friend)
Adapted by Mark O. Wilson

Generations follow generations – yet it lives.
Nations rise and fall – yet it lives.
Kings, dictators, presidents come and go – yet it lives.
Torn, condemned, burned – yet it lives.
Hated, despised, cursed – yet it lives.
Doubted, suspected, criticized – yet it lives.
Scoffed at by scorners – yet it lives.
Exaggerated by fanatics – yet it lives.
Misconstrued and misstated – yet it lives.
Ranted and raved about – yet it lives.
Its inspiration denied – yet it lives.

Yet it lives – as a lamp to our feet.
Yet it lives – as a light to our paths.
Yet it lives – as a standard for childhood.
Yet it lives – as a guide for youth.
Yet it lives – as an inspiration for midlife.
Yet it lives – as a comfort for the aged.
Yet it lives – as food for the hungry.
Yet it lives – as water for the thirsty.
Yet it lives – as rest for the weary.
Yet it lives – as light for the nations.
Yet it lives – as salvation for the sinner.
Yet it lives – as grace for the believer.

To know it is to love it.
To love it is to live by it.
To live by it means eternal life.
