Ode to NLT*
I love the NLT;
Yes, that's the book for me.
No more saying "Thou" and "Thee,"
It renders speech realistically.
No more language hard to read;
Simple words are what I need.
No more wondering what God said
From ancient phrases long since dead.
When I read this book out loud,
The "a-ha!" moments leave me wowed!
The Psalms and verses that I hear
Are finally the Truth made clear.
*NLT = New Living Translation
(sung to the tune of "The B-i-b-l-e" -- an old VBS tune)
