"The Bible: The Greatest Book On Earth"

A few years ago, I read J. Sidlow Baxter's wonderful Bible survey book called, "EXPLORE THE BOOK." His poem about the Bible, found in the Introduction, is very good. It is not titled, so I made a title from the first line. It should make you shout a hearty, "AMEN!!"

By J. Sidlow Baxter.

This is the greatest book on earth,
unparalleled it stands;
its author God, its truth divine,
inspired in every word and line,
tho' writ by human hands.

This is the living rock of truth
which all assaults defies.
O'er every stormy blast of time
it towers with majesty sublime;
it lives, and never dies.

This is the volume of the Cross;
its saving truth is sure;
its doctrine pure, its history true,
its Gospel old, yet ever new,
shall evermore endure.
