Sixty-six books you oughta read, The B-I-B-L-E
Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy—The first five books are the Books of Law.
The next twelve deal with History.
Joshua, Judges, Ruth, Samuel 1 and 2, 1st and 2nd Kings,
1st and 2nd Chronicles, too. Ezra, Nehemiah, Esther is the last.
If you’re writing all this down, I hope you’re writing fast!
Next Books of Poetry:
Job and Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Solomon
There’re five Major Prophets in God’s Manual:
Isaiah, Jeremiah, Lamentations, Ezekiel, Daniel
And out of thirty-nine in the Old Testament
That leaves twelve Minor Prophets to complete the set:
Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, Michah, Nahum and Habakkuk,
Zephaniah, Haggai, Zechariah, Malachi

In the New Testament there’re twenty-seven books.
The first four tell the life of Christ. Why don’t you take a look.
Matthew, Mark, Luke and John—They all relate the facts.
The next book tells church history, and we call that book Acts.
At this point there are twenty-one letters to believers.
If we can get through this list we will truly be achievers.
Romans, 1st and 2nd Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians,
Philippians, Colossians, 1st and 2nd Thessalonians,
1st and 2nd Timothy, Titus, Philemon, Hebrews,
