Dedication of pew bibles

If you’ve got some lovely new pew bibles to dedicate, why not do what Kat Campion-Spall did and re-work the collect for Bible Sunday for the dedication?

Blessed are you, Lord God,
for you have caused all Holy Scriptures to be written for our learning.
We now dedicate these Bibles in your service and to your glory.
Pour out your blessing on all that read them,
that through them your Word may be revealed.
Grant all who use them so to hear, read, mark, and inwardly digest them,
that, by patience and comfort of your holy Word,
they may embrace and for ever hold fast the hope of everlasting life,
which you have given us in our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.
