Just as a newborn babe needs milk to live,
Desire the word of God to feed your soul;
Without it’s nourishment you fail to give
The sustenance you need to make you whole.
Essential truths within the gospel form
A base to grasp much deeper certainties;
The language fundamentals soon transform
What once was gibberish to spoken ease.
How can you understand God’s awsome grace
Unless you know what Jesus did for you?
How can you hope to win the final race
Unless you train your muscles to push through?
Your spirit cries in hunger for the Word;
The Savior’s gentle teachings are preferred.
As newborn babes,
desire the sincere milk of the word,
that ye may grow thereby:
1 Peter 2:2
