Paying Homage to THE Book!

The mind of God, the state of man, the way of salvation, the doom of sinners and the happiness of believers.

Its doctrines are holy, its precepts are binding, its histories are true and its decisions are immutable.

Read it to be wise, believe it to be safe and practice it to be holy.

It contains light to direct me, food to sustain me and comfort to cheer me.

It is the traveler's map, the pilgrims staff, the pilot's compass, the soldiers sword and the Christian's character

Here Paradise is restored, Heaven opened and the gates of Hell disclosed.

Christ is its grand  object,                     

My good is its design and the glory of God is its end.

It should fill the memory, rule the heart and guide the feet.

Read it slowly, frequently and prayerfully.

It is given me in life, will be opened in judgment and will be remembered forever.

It involves the highest responsibility, will reward the greatest labour and will condemn all who trifle with its sacred contents.
