The Bible: There it stands

      

Century follows century - There it stands.

Empires rise and fall and are forgotten - There it stands.

Dynasty succeeds dynasty - There it stands.

Kings are crowned and uncrowned - There it stands.

Despised and torn to pieces - There it stands.

Storms of hate swirl about it - There it stands.

Atheists rail against it - There it stands.

Agnostics smile cynically - There it stands.

Profane prayerless punsters caricature it - There it stands.

Unbelief abandons it - There it stands.

Higher critics deny its claim to inspiration - there it stands.

Thunderbolts of wrath smite - There it stands.

An anvil that has broken a million hammers - there it stands.

The flames are kindled about it - There it stands.

The arrows of hate are discharged against it - There it stands.

Radicalism rants and raves against it - There it stands.

Fogs of sophistry conceal it temporarily - There it stands.

The tooth of time gnaws but makes no dent in it - There it stands.

Infidels predict its abandonment - There it stands.

Modernism tries to explain it away - There it stands.
