"God's Word is the instrument by which God's Spirit transforms the Christian."
Thy Word is like a garden, Lord, with flowers bright and fair;
And everyone who seeks may pluck a lovely cluster there.
Thy Word is like a deep, deep mine; and jewels rich and rare
Are hidden in its mighty depths for every searcher there.
Thy Word is like a starry host: a thousand rays of light
Are seen to guide the traveler and make his pathway bright.
Thy Word is like an armory, where soldiers may repair;Oh, may I love Thy precious Word, may I explore the mine,
And find, for lifeís long battle day, all needful weapons there.
May I its fragrant flowers glean, may light upon me shine!
Oh, may I find my armor there! Thy Word my trusty sword,
Iíll learn to fight with every foe the battle of the Lord.
