A Book Search - Poem by Esther Thornburg

There is a book our ancestors read.
They often told of things it said.

It gave them courage to go ahesd.
Times were difficult and life filled with dread.

It was written on scrolls in Hebrew and Greek.
It was written over centuries, for all to seek.

It told words from our Maker, for our lives to mold.
It brings love, His knowledge, His wisdom, to unfold.

There are words to keep within our heart, and hold,
It has words to remember for both young and old.

God said, and it became real
Let there be and there is reality.

The earth is God's footstool.
View the wonders of His tools.

He had a purpose in making man,
It was part of a master plan.
