We should never take it for granted,
This precious Holy Book;
For it contains the key to life,
And all that is right and good.
Though other books will fall by the way,
With Godís Word it will never be so;
And if we choose to forsake it,
Therein lies the beginning of woe.
Let us cherish this dear old Book
As the treasure of treasures it is,
And give Him our solemn word
That we will not forget His.

This book of the law shall not depart from
your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day
and night, that you may observe to do all
that is written in it. For then you will make
your way prosperous, and then you will have
good success. (Joshua 1:8)
