An unknown author wrote the following poem about the veracity of the Bible.
I find the Lord in the Bible
Wherever I chance to look;
He is the theme of the Bible,
The Center and Heart of the Book.
He is the Rose of Sharon;
He is the Lily fair
Whenever I open the Bible

He, at the Book's beginning,
Gave to the earth its form;
He is the Ark of shelter,
Bearing the brunt of the storm;
The burning Bush of the desert,
The Budding of Aaron's rod;
Whenever I look in the Bible,
I see the Son of God.
The Ram upon Mount Moriah;
The ladder from earth to sky;
The scarlet Cord in the window;
And the Serpent lifted high;
The smitten Rock in the desert;
The Shepherd with staff and crook;
The face of my Lord I discover
Whenever I open the Book
