Beat Up Bible

Album: The Breaker (2017)
  • This beat up bible
    Dusty on the shelf
    Worn out and torn up
    don't look like much but it will get you through hell
    It's been held in the hands
    Of all the ones that I love
    It might be falling off the binding but every line in it still holds up

    This beat up bible
    Yeah, yeah, yeah

    That old recliner
    In this living room
    She was sitting right there teaching me a prayer
    All that she knew
    About the words on the pages
    About the greatest gift
    Where you find the truth, you find the proof, of how love still is
    In this beat up bible

    I can hear her saying
    Baby, when you praying
    Give him all your worries, he'll give you all you need
    When you're crying and you're hurting
    And nothing else is working
    All you've got to do is just believe
    In this beat up bible
    In this beat up bible oh yeah

    I was holding her hand
    When she was on her way home
    She said, baby don't cry, I'm going to see the one who rolled away the stone, yeah

    I can hear her saying
    Baby, when you're praying
    Give him all your worries, he'll give you all you need
    I'm crying and I'm hurting
    And nothing else is working
    So, I open up the pages and start to read

    This beat up bible
    Dusty on the shelf
    Worn out and torn up
    Don't look like much but it'll get you through hell Writer/s: CARY BARLOWE, HILLARY LINDSEY, SHANE STEVENS
