I hold in my hands the inspired Word of the Lord.
I will read, reverence, respect,
remember and review its instruction to me.
By it, I can live a holy, happy and honest life.
I will love it, learn from it and live by it.
It is God's love letter to me.
It is His guide for my life
and it is His consolation for me troubles.
Today, I open it that it may speak to my spirit,
feed my soul and preserve my body.
