The word of God is precious to the soul,
A pearl so pure its price cannot be set,
And hid within the heart it takes control,
An antidote for sin whenever met.
When mixed with faith, the word becomes a shield,
Deflecting all assaults from Satan’s sword,
And kept within the mind the word’s revealed,
A map to lead the soul to wisdom stored.
The scriptures do attest to Christ throughout;
From Genesis to Revelation He’s shown,
The Way to Heaven’s gate without a doubt,
To gather all God’s children to His throne.
The word of God, a living water pure,
The Holy Spirit’s voice that will endure.
Thy word have I hid in mine heart,
that I might not sin against thee.
Psalm 119:11 KJV
