    I am putting together a file on poems and illustrations about the Bible. I have a half dozen or so but would like to get as many as I can. If you could help, it would be a blessing. Here is one that I have:

    I have a companion of infinite worth;
    We travel together through this dreary earth.
    From pilgrimage here to a home in the sky,
    We’re traveling together, my Bible and I.

    I have a companion, a wonderful guide.
    A solace and comfort whatever betide.
    A friend never failing when others pass by.
    Oh, blessed communion, my Bible and I.

    I have a companion, ‘tis God’s Holy Word,
    Revealing from heaven the mind of my Lord.
    My Rock and my Refuge when danger is nigh;
    We’ve blessing eternal, my Bible and I.

    I have a companion, a heavenly light,
    A pillar by day and a fire by night;
    A lamp from cradle until I shall die,
    What blessed communion, my Bible and I.

    I have a companion, a dear faithful friend.
    A union of blessing that never shall end,
    Till Jesus returns with His saints from on high,
    We’ll travel together, my Bible and I.

    O light of my pathway! Thou lamp to my feet!
    O manna from heaven! So precious and sweet.
    For thee do I live, and for thee would I die,
    Forever and ever, my Bible and I.

    -- M.H. Knobloch

    How about this, the first hymn I learned to play on the piano:

    Holy Bible, Book divine,
    Precious treasure, thou art mine;
    Mine to tell me whence I came;
    Mine to teach me what I am.

    Mine to chide me when I rove;
    Mine to show a Savior’s love;
    Mine thou art to guide and guard;
    Mine to punish or reward.

    Mine to comfort in distress;
    Suffering in this wilderness;
    Mine to show, by living faith,
    Man can triumph over death.

    Mine to tell of joys to come,
    And the rebel sinner’s doom;
    O thou holy Book divine,
    Precious treasure, thou art mine.

    There are, of course, many hymns about the Bible.

    Such as:

    Sorry, I can't help myself.

    Here's one for you Dr. Bob:

    My Bible and I
    We've travelled together through life's rugged way,
    O'er land and o'er water, by night and by day:
    To travel without it I never would try;
    We keep close together, my Bible and I.

    In sorrow I've proved it my comfort and joy,
    When weak my strong tower which nought can destroy;
    When death comes so near me 'tis thought I would die,
    We still are together, my Bible and I.

    If powers of evil against me would come,
    And threaten to rob me of heaven and home,
    God's Word then directs me to Him in the sky;
    And nothing can part us, my Bible and I.

    When evil temptations are brought to my view,
    And I in my weakness know not what to do,
    On Christ as my strength I am taught to rely;
    And so we keep company, my Bible and I.

    When life's path is ended; if Jesus should come
    And take all His blood-purchased bretheren home;
    Or if, in long suffering, He waits 'til I die,
    We'll never be parted, My Bible and I.

    And when in the glory my Lord I behold,
    With all His redeemed gathered safe in the fold,
    My Bible and I close companions will be,
    For God's Word abideth for eternity.
