or
Wanda Jackson

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 the dust off the Bible and redeem your poor soul

You can read your magazines, read of love and tragic things
But not one verse of scripture, not one verse do you know
When it is the very truth and its 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 the dust off the Bible and redeem your poor soul

If you have a friend you'd like to help along life's 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 off the 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 the dust off the Bible and redeem your poor soul

Amen
