Filed Under (Song of the Week) by Rob on 05-03-2012

There are not enough songs about the importance of the Bible. And yet it is a huge need in the Western church today.

This website states:

“American Christians are biblically illiterate. Although most of them contend that the Bible contains truth and is worth knowing, and most of them argue that they know all of the relevant truths and principles.”

It goes on to say that 35% of Christians in the USA never read the Bible. Shocking indeed!

Yet this one says that “Half the books of the Bible can be read in 10 to 45 minutes each, and many of them can be read in less than 20. The entire Old and New Testaments can be read aloud slowly and with expression in less than 71 hours.”

Wow! So, here’s my latest song on this subject:

Your Word

Your Word is like a shining light
In every situation
A timeless source of truth and life
For every tribe and nation
Transforming hearts, renewing minds
Through every generation
Eternal God, we thank you (x3)
For the Bible.

It teaches and equips us
For life upon this earth
It tells us of your Kingdom
And it celebrates your worth

It fills the tired and weary
With the strength to carry on
It guides our path from day to day
And shows us right from wrong.

It tells of how You made us
And how we went astray
It shows the path to Jesus Christ
The life, the truth, the way.

Inspire us through its pages
And let our faith increase.
It’s sharper than a two-edged sword.
Yet it fills our hearts with peace.

If you use this song in your church, do let me know how it goes! The message is very important, as I’m sure you can see!
