Thy Precious Word

Do I appreciate Thy Word
That showed me Calvary

Do I appreciate Thy Word
That showed me Calvary
And gave me faith and simple trust
To find new life in Thee?

Do I hold fast Thy precious Word
When storms and wild winds blow
That all the promises in Thee
Are mine to claim and know?

Do I so heed Thy timeless Word
That when temptations come
I know the warnings strict and stern
And thus Thy will is done?

Do I delight in Thy own Word
When blessings from on high
Do shower in abundance
And banish every sigh?

Oh God–Thy Word–an anchor firm
Each step upon the way
I’ll cling, I’ll hold, I’ll treasure it
Through every coming day!
