"Generation follows generation -- yet it lives.
Nations rise and fall - yet it lives.
Kings, dictators, presidents come and go - yet it lives.
Hated, despised, cursed -- yet it lives.
Doubted, suspected criticized - yet it lives.
Condemned by atheists - yet it lives.
Scoffed at by scorners - yet it lives.
Exaggerated by fanatics - yet it lives.
Misconstrued and misstated -- yet it lives.
Ranted and raved about - yet it lives.
Its inspiration, denied -- yet it lives.
"Yet it lives - as a lamp to our feet.
Yet it lives - as a light to our path.
Yet it lives - as the gate to heaven.
Yet it lives - as a standard for childhood.
Yet it lives - as a guide' for youth.
Yet it lives - as an inspiration for the matured.
Yet it lives - as a comfort for the aged.
Yet it lives - as food for the hungry.
Yet it lives - as water for the thirsty.
Yet it lives - as rest for the weary.
Yet it lives - as light for the heathen.
Yet it lives - as salvation for the sinner.
Yet it lives- as grace for the Christian.

To know it is to love it.
To love it is to accept it.
To accept it means life eternal."
