The Dusty Bible

FacebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmailReading Time: < 1 minute


I found an old, old Bible 

Tucked away with other books.

And felt perhaps a treasure lay

within its pages — so I looked. 

I didn’t find a treasure rare

inside the book itself.

But upon the faded pages

were gifts beyond man’s wealth.

The words told a wondrous story

A time I’d never seen.

A cross with blood upon it,

a Man who died for me.

I thought I’d find possessions

Searching that forgotten nook.

Instead I found my Lord and Savior

hidden in a dusty book.
