Poem: Read the Bible Through

Yes I thought I knew my Bible
Reading piecemeal, hit or miss
Now a part of John or Matthew
Then a bit of Genesis

Certain chapters of Isaiah
Certain Psalms, twenty-third
First of Proverbs, twelfth of Romans
Yes I thought I knew the Word

But I found that thorough reading
Was a different thing to do
And the way was unfamiliar
When I read my Bible through

You who like to play at Bible
Dip and dabble here there
Just before you kneel all weary
Yawning through a hurried prayer

You who treat this crown of writings
As you treat no other book
Just a paragraph disjointed
Just a crude impatient look

Try a worthier procedure
Try a broad and steady view
You will kneel in awesome wonder
When you read the Bible through
