Thy Word I love, O Lord.
Tis my greatest delight.
Early I rise to seek you
And wait for the morning light.
Thy Word I receive, O Lord.
Tis my daily bread.
It feeds my broken heart
And prepares for the day ahead.
Thy Word I will keep, O Lord.
Tis my strength for each day,
You are the solid rock.
I will follow all your ways.
Thy Word I need, O Lord.
Tis the joy of my heart.
You draw me closer to You,
To teach and Thy Truth to impart .
I give thanks for this wonderful gift.
More precious than silver and gold
A treasure of promise and love,
My Bible, whose worth is untold.
