The book
Gently lies in my palm
The word
The power
The strength
The authority
God’s will
All in my palm

The author,
Raises the dead
Heals the sick
Comforts the bereaved
Feeds the hungry
Father to orphans
Husband to widows
Gives justice to the oppressed
Provides for the poor
Uplifts the lowly
He holds the universe

This book gives life
With words
As sharp as sword
And cuts back and forth
With words
As bright as the sun
It shines to all corners
Of the world
With words
As precious as gold
Nothing is expensive as it
With words
Wise as never before
That teach even teachers
With words that Touch
Touching from the skin
To the veins
To the nerves
To the blood
To the heart
To the mind
To the soul

The book with stories
Stories so sweet
With sweet words
Sweet thoughts
Full of God’s love
Words more real
Words more applicable
Words very artistic
Words so pretty
Words so colourful
So perfect
Words of all ages
From the old to the new.

All this in my palm

I am reading the Bible.
