Dust on the Bible

Dust on the Bible

I went into a home one day to see some friends of mine
Of all the 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 souls

You can read your magazines read 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 its contents good for you
But if dust is covered o'er it, it is sure to doom your soul

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,
      trade the wrong way for the right
