Dust on the Bible, dust on the holy word
The words of all the prophets and the sayings of our Lord
Of all the other books you'll find there's none salvation holds
Get that dust off the Bible and redeem your poor soul.

I went into a home one day to see some friends of mine
Of all the books and magazines not a Bible could I find
I asked them for the Bible when they brought it what a shame
For the dust was covered o'er it not a fingerprint was plain.

Dust on the Bible, dust on the holy word
The words of all the prophets and the sayings of our Lord
Of all the other books you'll find there's none salvation holds
Get that dust off the Bible and redeem your poor soul.

--- Instrumental ---

You can read your magazines read of love and tragic things
And not one verse of Christian not one verse do you know
When it is the very truth and it's contents good for you
Dust on the Bible will doom your poor soul.

Dust on the Bible, dust on the holy word
The words of all the prophets and the sayings of our Lord
Of all the other books you'll find there's none salvation holds
Get that dust off the Bible and redeem your poor soul...

    We have forgotten the word of god is food for our souls. We 'fill' our need with empty calories- tv, non christian books, poorly written internet blogs... But we still crave .. While there.. On a back shelf, under a pile of useless coupons and newpaper ads.. Lies the book , the inspired word of god, that can quence our thirst, fill our hearts and sustain us eternally.

    It means to always read the bible and keep it close to your heart. Never put it where you can't find it. Its the word of god.

    If you never read the bible then you will go to hell with the devil bc you are not getting the word of the lord, you are only reading and looking at things of sin.
