The Old Black Book
May 1st, 2016
Poem
Author Unknown
Categories: Meditation

The Old Black Book reveals the mind of God, the state of man, the way of salvation, the doom of sinners, and the happiness of believers.
Read It to be wise, believe It to be safe, and practice It to be holy.
It contains light to direct you, food to support you, and comfort to cheer you.
It is the traveler's map, the pilgrim's staff, the pilot's compass, the soldier's sword, and the Christian's charter.
Here, too, heaven is opened, and the gates of hell disclosed.
Jesus Christ is Its grand subject, our good Its design, and the glory of God Its end.
It should fill the memory, rule the heart, and guide the feet.
Read It slowly, frequently, prayerfully. It is a mine of wealth, a paradise of glory, and a river of pleasure.
It is given you in life, will be opened at the judgement, and be remembered forever. It involves highest responsibility, will reward the greatest labor, and condemn all who trifle with Its sacred contents.
Owned in riches; studied in wisdom; trusted in salvation; loved it is character; and obeyed it is power.
