Our Sustenance


-->

Our nourishment, our source of strength
Is found within God’s Word
For there the height and depth and length
Of all we need is heard

The statues of the Lord are right,
Rejoicing the heart:
The commandment of the Lord is pure,
Enlightening the eyes.
More to be desired are they than gold.
Yes, than much fine gold:
Sweeter also than the honey
Of the honeycomb

Bridge:
Moreover by them
Is Thy servant warned:
And in keeping of them there is
Great reward.

The fear of the Lord is clean,
Enduring forever;
The judgments of the Lord are true
And righteous altogether.
More to be desired are they than gold.
Yes, than much fine gold:
Sweeter also than the honey
Of the honeycomb.

And without this we have no gauge
Our own lives to maintain
For God is found within each page

His Word our life sustains

From Psalm 19
