"Dust on the Bible" as written by John Bailes and Walter Bailes....
Well, 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 over 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

Oh, you can read your magazines of love and tragic things
Not one word of Bible verse, not a scripture do you know
But it is the very truth and its contents good for you
But if dust is covered over, it is sure to doom your 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

Oh, you have a friend you'd like to help along the way
Just tell him that the good book shows a mortal how to pray
The best advice to give him that will make his burden light
Is to dust the family Bible, trade the wrong for the right

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
