In Your Word ó Don Fortner

(Tune: #342 ó Must Jesus Bear the Cross Alone? ó CMD)

 

  1. Father of mercies, in Your Word, Your grace and glory shine!

What treasures for our souls are stored, in every page and line!

Here we, in every time of need, unbounded riches find,

Riches of grace in Christ, we read, written in evíry line.

 

  1. We read the record of Your love, and, with the cross in sight,

Through all the promises we rove, with soul-cheering delight.

Hearing our great Redeemerís voice, what blessed peace is found!

Eternal life, eternal joys in Godís dear Son abound!

 

  1. Oh, let Your Word forever be my soulís daily delight,

My Saviorís beauties let me see with clearer, brighter light!

And, by Your Spirit, gracious Lord, my soul instruct and cheer,

Teach me to love Your sacred Word, and see my Savior there.
