A prayer and an encouragement for those who faithfully study and preach God’s Word week by week, diligently mining its treasures that we might marvel at truth in all its facets.
Vast the Riches of God’s Word
“Therefore I love your commandments
above gold, above fine gold.”
1. Vast the riches of God’s Word,
Truth that shines as purest gold.
Search its treasures, venture deep,
All its splendor to behold!
2. Grant us hearts that love the Word,
Open ears that we might hear,
Help Your servant, Lord, we pray,
Make the message plain and clear.
3. Keep our thoughts from wandering
As Your Word is preached today,
Anchor us in truth applied
That we might not fall or stray.
4. Preach the Word, we need to hear!
Draw out wealth as from a mine.
Show each gem that we might see
Truth in all its facets shine.
5. Take us to each verse and line,
Open up the Word and show
All the riches we can find;
Help us more of Christ to know.
6. May God’s Word in brilliance shine
Light on all we do and say.
May it be our great delight
To receive it and obey.
