I saw this poem in the March 10, 2017, Vol. LXXXIII, No. 5, issue of 'The Sword of the Lord.' The Poem did not list any credits, or an author, and may be found on page 3, under, 'For Preachers.'

My Bible

Though the cover is worn

And the pages are torn

                  And though places bear

                traces of tears,

Yet more precious than gold

Is the Book, worn and old,

                   That can shatter and scatter

  my fears.

When I prayerfully look

    In the precious old Book,

                           As my eyes scan the pages I

see

Many tokens of love

      From the Father above

                        Who is nearest and dearest

      to me.

This old Book is my Guide;

'Tis a Friend by my side;

                   It will lighten and brighten

      my way.

And each promise I find

           Soothes and gladden my mind

            As I read it and heed it

today.

It is my hope that all of us will love the pages of the Perfect Holy Writ from a loving Father above.

"Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning." James 1:17

      I was given a "The Master Study Bible," KJV, with an, "Encyclopedia," Topical Concordance," and, "Other Study Materials," as a gift. Copyright by, "Cornerstone Bible Publishers" in Nashville, TN. Its leather bound. It has a "Bible Reading Plan," by Robert Murray. Besides having a nice "Bible Notes" section in the back it appears to have quite a selection of Bible maps. It is a Reference Bible with the references in the middle column.
      Does anybody have any comments on it? Good or bad.
      I have not have time to check any references as yet. Is there any references that anybody wants to bring to my attention?
      Any comments, or specific things to look for, or background information on the Reference Bible authors is appreciated.

      I’ve been interested in starting one of those plans where you are sent a study on each part of the Bible every day, until you get through the whole book, in a year. Has anyone done one of these? I want to make sure I use one with Biblically sound studies. Has anyone followed one that they trust?

      What is everyone’s thoughts on the Thompson Chain Reference Bible? I really did not like it the first time I saw one, but now I’ve come to realize that it is a great tool for getting into God’s word and digging into it. I have found it stimulates my devotional reading and is very helpful for digging into the different topics in a particular text. I like that it causes you to just move around in the Bible day apart from some notes in the back it has basically no theological bias.

      I was wondering, does anyone know of a Bible translation, that is as accurate as the KJV, but has more modern writing?
