The archaeologist digs to find
Evidence of life in things left behind.
The believer digs to find
There are words to guide this life by.
Just when did the words begin?
They have remained through think and thin.
Archaeologists are still digging for a find.
They search for records of any ancient lines?
Words were around before the beginning of time.
The sun and moon placed time in line.
Dig deep for a treasured find.
Then be willing to hold, "Make it mine".
As the journey of life moves on,
The search moves endlessly along.
Dig deep treasured words to find.
They can lead to the great goal line.
Search where you will and however you may
But sometime along the way
Let what the Apostle John wrote, be heard.
"In the beginning was the word".
