Granny's Favorite Recipe Book

When I was a little girl I asked my Granny
Granny, how am I supposed
To live a good healthy strong life
Granny said, with a twinkle in her eye

She’d share her favorite recipe book with me
And promised if I followed the recipes
I would always know the difference
Between wrong and right

Granny said, that her recipe book
Had the most marvelous tasty recipes
For faith, love, patience and joy
With extra ingredients of help and protection
In every single recipe in God’s book

But most of all the best tasting food
That fills everyone’s heart and soul
Granny said, it was The Holy Bible
And one day she would give her book to me

Now I have Granny’s favorite recipe book
For now I am all grown up
I share Granny’s recipe book of love
With everyone who will let me

For inside the cover of Granny’s book
She wrote, My Favorite Recipe Book
Delicious recipes for the soul
The Holy Bible
Love Granny
