Ps.19:10; 119:72, 103, 131 Heb.4:12 Is.55:11
Word to appreciate, – better than honey,
truth more sustaining than richest of food,
sweeter than sleep, or abundance of money,
casket of treasures, all holy and good.
Word to appropriate, – carefully listen
listen to truth and its message receive:
meditate, think, and be willing for action:
famine for all who refuse to believe.
Sword of the Sovereign to bring us conviction,
– he who has ears let him hear and embrace
Word that empowers to obey its instruction,
Word to apply to our lives by God’s grace.
