Family Bible (Walter Breeland, Paul Buskirk and Claude Gray) There's A Fam'ly Bible on the table Each page is torn and hard to read But The Fam'ly Bible on the table Will ever be my key to memories. At the close of day when work was over And when the evening meal was done Dad would read to us from The Fam'ly Bible And we'd count our many blessings one by one. Refrain: I can see us sittin' 'round the table When from The Fam'ly Bible Dad would read (1) I can hear my mother softly singing (2) I can hear my mama softly singing Rock of Ages, Rock of Ages, cleft for me. This old world of ours is full of troubles But this world would oh, so better be If we'd find more Bibles on the table And mothers singing Rock of Ages cleft for me.
