By Katie Belk
Kannapolis Middle SchoolIt has stood the test of time
While still going strong.
Inspiring me a special way,
Moving me along.
To keep my pathway straight,
It guides me day by day.
Providing words of wisdom.
My life’s goal is to obey.
The stories there are many,
The prophets lay it on the line.
So that you and I will understand,
The love that’s so divine.
Pain and sorrow may enter within,
But with him in your heart,
Everlasting love will prevail,
From you he will never part.
From Genesis to Revelation,
From beginning to end.
This book has stood the test of time,
This inspiration is my friend.
