All His

I remember my Father’s words

sounding like a song,

Saying read your Bible;

It will help make you

Rich, wise and strong.


And so I started this simple practice

At first reluctantly and with dour

and then by routine;

and now with passion

I read them by the hour.


And so I will tell my son

what my Father use to say,

because I’ve learned

the worth of reading

my Bible every day.


Soon, I pray he’ll know,

as he starts to read,

the writing on these pages

has all the strength, wealth and wisdom

I thought were mine,

are all really His.
