THE RICHES OF GOD'S WORD




Let avarice, from shore to shore
Her favourite god pursue;
Thy word, O Lord, we value more
Than India or Peru.


Here mines of knowledge, love, and joy,
Are opened to our sight;
The purest gold without alloy,
And gems divinely bright.


The councils of redeeming grace
These sacred leaves unfold;
And here the Saviour's lovely face
Our raptured eyes behold.


Here, light descending from above
Directs our doubtful feet;
Here, promises of heavenly love
Our ardent wishes meet.


Our numerous griefs are here redressed,
And all our wants supplied:
Nought we can ask to make us blessed,
Is in this book denied.


For these inestimable gains,
That so enrich the mind,
O may we search with eager pains,
Assured that we shall find!
