PRÉCIS PEARLS, original, is a summary
Of God's pure Word, the Bible, set to poetry.
The Old Testament - thirty nine books in it -
Rhyming verses recall, one poem per book writ.
The New Testament next is condensed, but this time
Its twenty-sev'n books' text has each chapter in rhyme.
While audio proclaims the sacred gospel news,
The Authorised King James Version was the base used.
The poems, 12 lines each, 12 syllables per line,
Rhyming couplets in speech, total two ninety-nine.
Key verses - book, chapter - shine above as a pearl;
May they show the reader God's great love for the world.
