"Dust On The Bible" lyrics

Dust On The Bible

I went into a home one day
To see some friends of mine
Of all their books and magazines
Not a Bible could I find
I asked them for the Bible
When they brought it, what a shame
For the dust was covered over it
Not a fingerprint was plain

Dust on the Bible
Dust on the Holy Word
The words of all the prophets
And the sayings of our Lord
Of all the other books you'll find
There's none salvation holds
Get the dust off the Bible
And redeem your poor soul

Oh, you can read your magazines
Of love and tragic things
But not one word of Bible verse
Not a scripture do you know
When it is the very truth
And it's contents good for you
But it's dust is covered over it
And it's sure to doom your soul

Dust on the Bible
Dust on the Holy Word
The word of all the prophets
And the sayings of our Lord
Of all the other books you'll find
There's none salvation holds
Get the dust off the Bible
And redeem your poor soul

Oh, if you have a friend
You'd like to help along life's way
Just tell him that the Good Book
Shows a mortal how to pray
The best advice to give him
That will make his burdens light
Is to dust the family Bible
Trade the wrong way for the right

Dust on the Bible
Dust on the Holy Word
The word of all the prophets
And the sayings of our Lord
Of all the other books you'll find
There's none salvation holds
Get the dust off the Bible
And redeem your poor soul
