We delight in your Word dear Lord!
Ours eyes tremble with excitement as we study
Shaking our voices as we read and ponder on them
How we rejoice in the preaching of your Word!
Oh! how we pray that the world would turn to hear
That they would turn to listen to your amazing Word
To pay attention to the only life giving word
To hear of the great news of your salvation
The amazing news of your forgiveness
And the free offer of eternal life by faith in Jesus
How outrageous, that we would give our ear to another!
Paying attention to anything other than your Word
Why would we incline our ears to any other voice?
Would we not be the most ridiculous of men to turn from your teaching?
And the most reckless to disregard your warning?
Deny us the fleeting joy of heeding other voices.
Forbid that we would crave anything other than your living Word.
For the words of men are like wind but your Word is a fortress
Lasting for generations after generations
And giving life to those who cling on them
Thank you Lord for your Word
