Why I love the KJV Bible
When I think about my blessings
I have much to be thankful for
My life has been filled with happiness
I couldn’t ask for more.
Oh, there’s been times of loneliness
And times of tears and pain
But God has been really good to me
Through sunshine, clouds or rain.
One thing for which I’m thankful
It controls my destiny
My parents were Bible believers
And that meant a lot to me.
We talked about the Bible
We learned the Golden Rule
And when ever Sunday came around
We were in Bible school.
I memorized the Apostles
I tried to preach like Paul
My pulpit was an orange crate
I stood about three feet tall!
We always used the King James
Back in my early days
They didn’t publish the perversions
We couldn’t afford them anyway!
From mother’s knee to age eighty-three
That’s all I ever knew
And when you hear me teach or preach
I’ll be King James through and through.
I’ve heard men make the comment
But it was said in jest
If the King James was good for Paul and Silas
It’s good for all the rest.
Some words have changed their meaning
Since the old King James was wrought
But God expects us to study
If we the truth be taught.
Words like Thee and Thou are written
We all know what they mean
They are but words of great respect
For God who is our King!
We all object to “Easter”
A bad translation at best
But with a little study
We all can pass the test.
And then there is the “Holy Ghost”
The “Spirit” is what’s meant
He’s also called the “Comforter”
The One whom Jesus sent
And with this grand old Bible
Many a debate was won
We taught and formed congregations
With converts to God’s Son.
The Wallaces, the Nichols
And Marshall Keeble too
Led men and women to the faith
And taught them what to do.
So as you travel the narrow way
In search of souls to teach
Make sure that dear old Bible
Is well within your reach.
Teach the younger generation
How to plant the seed
To be ready with an answer
For all the souls in need.
Study to be a workman approved
Stay busy for the Lord
And then when life is over
You’ll reap that grand reward!
