The Bible reveals the mind of God, the state of man, and the way of

Its Author is God,
Its writers were men,
It is infallibly inspired.

It is given you in life.
Opened in judgment,
And will endure forever.

It is a mine of wealth,
A river of pleasure,
A paradise of glory.

God’s glory is its end.
The Lord Jesus Christ
Is its wonderful Object.

Our good is its design.
Here Heaven is opened,
Paradise restored,
And Hell’s gates are disclosed.
Its histories are true,
Its doctrines are holy,
Its precepts binding.

Read it thoughtfully,
Read it frequently,
Read it prayerfully.

Read it to be wise,
Believe it to be safe,
Practice it to be holy,
Memorize it to grow.
