The 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 o'er it, not a finger print was plain

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

You can read your magazines, read of love and tragfic things
But not one word of Bible verse, not a scripture do you know
When it is the very truth, and its contents good for you
But if dust is covered o'er it, it is sure to doom your soul

 * Refrain

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 burden light
Is to dust the family Bible, crade the wrong way for the right
