“Precious Book”

Precious Book

 

In this,Your Precious Book, O Lord,

to men, the greatest ever heard,

I closely listen, learn and live,

the Truth which only You can give.

There is no fear it can’t relieve.

There is no sin it can’t reveal.

There is no joy it can’t renew.

There is no plan it can’t refine.

I love each word and page I hold,

each promise, grace and story told.

I find a Treasure in each line,

‘tis Thee, O Christ, the Word divine.

  1. Amen! Thank for sharing this poetry, brother. “Oh how I love your law! It is my meditation all the day.” Psalm 119:97

  2. Thanks Matt,
    Did you hear John Piper talk about why we need poetry?
    If not you might also be interested in his thots on how poetry can be used to draw us closer to our Lord.
