For You are my rock and my fortress. Therefore, for Your name’s sake, lead me and guide me.
— Psalms 31:3 (NKJV) —
I grew up singing the hymn “Give Me the Bible,” but recently this song has taken on a new significance for me. I’m currently reading a book that discusses how most people in the Middle Ages did not have access to the Holy Scriptures. Since the December 2 incident, I have been depending so much on the Bible. Passages I’ve read before have taken on a whole new meaning now. I’m so grateful that I live in a day and age when I have the Bible in my own language! What a blessing!
Give me the Bible, holy message shining,
Thy light shall guide me in the narrow way.
Precept and promise, law and love combining,
‘Til night shall vanish in eternal day.
