God Be In My Head
by Sarum Primer
God be in my head, and in my understanding;
God be in mine eyes, and in my looking;
God be in my mouth, and in my speaking;
God be in my heart, and in my thinking;
God be at mine end, and at my departing.
"Every man's life is a plan of God."

I am just a young black bird,
Waiting high in the tree.
For someone to find me and help me,
A teacher is what I will need.
As I am just a young black bird,
No matter what I will say.
I know nothing of anything,
And a teacher I will obey.
Teach me all that I need,
To survive among the sky and the trees.
I will listen to what I am told,
You're wisdom will put me at ease.
I know that teaching a young bird is difficult,
And this I am very sure.
But I promise to leave stubborn and negativity,
At home, so that I, a black bird can mature.
So please teach me all you know.
Teach me everything you can.
For all I want is to be a good black bird,
One with skills that will help me to stand.
And finally teach me to thank the Lord
For all that I have and do
For blessings from above
Teach me the principle of gratitude.
"Bible reading is an education in itself."
by John Wesley
I am a creature of a day.
I am a spirit come from God,
and returning to God.
I want to know one thing:
the way to heaven.
God himself has condescended to
teach me the way.
He has written it down in a book.
Oh, give me that book!
At any price give me the book of God.
Let me be a man of one book.
"It is not at all incredible, that a book which has been so long in the possession of mankind
should contain many truths as yet undiscovered."
More Than A Dead Letter
By Phillips Brooks
The Bible is like a telescope.
If a man looks through his telescope,
Then he sees the worlds beyond;
But if he looks at his telescope,
Then he does not see anything but that.
The Bible is a thing to be looked through,
To see that which is beyond;
But most people only look at it;
And so they see only the dead letter.
"The Bible is worth all other books
which have ever been printed."
