11. As You Journey Through Life, Many Years or but Few

1
As you journey through life, many years or but few,
 
There's one thing in earnest I ask you to do;
 
O listen, my boy, while I say this to you;
 
O cling to the Bible, my boy.
 
O cling to the Bible, my boy, my boy,
 
O cling to the Bible, my boy.
 
In living, in dying, all else letting go,
 
O cling to the Bible, my boy.
2
It's a message for you that is sent from above;
 
It tells of redemption accomplished in love.
 
O read it, my boy; God has sent it to you;
 
O cling to the Bible, my boy.
3
It's the lamp that gives light, and your path will be clear
 
If you prayerfully read it each day of the year.
 
For Jesus the Lord, by His Word is brought near;
 
O cling to the Bible, my girl.
 
O cling to the Bible, my girl, my girl,
 
O cling to the Bible, my girl.
 
In living, in dying, all else letting go,
 
O cling to the Bible, my girl.
