In the mail today I received a Bible, with the precious words I need,
So plain and so simple, all mine to sit and read.
The story inside was of our savior, and of those he chose to lead,
I never owned a Bible, I wondered if I believed?
I don't have the words to tell you, how I need his helping hand,
Even if this book will save me, as I pass through this land.
I can't say I will ever read it, but something you must understand?
The words inside won't hurt me, I know it's not his plan!
I know if I read one passage, each and every day,
By the time my life is over, I will know what to say.
How with death our lives start over, he said it was our way,
We will walk with our Savior, till eternity fades away.
