AM THE BIBLE
I am the Bible, God's wonderful library; I am always-and above all-the truth.
To the weary pilgrim, I am a strong staff.
To the one who sits in darkness, I am glorious light.
To those who stumble beneath heavy burdens, I am sweet rest.
To him who has lost his way, I am a safe guide.
To those who are sick in sin, I am healing strength and forgiveness.
To the discouraged, I am a glad message of hope.
To those who are distressed and tossed about by the storms of life,
I am an anchor, sure and steadfast.
To those who search for salvation, I reveal the Savior of the world.
I am God's Word--for you.
I am your Bible!
