As I open your holy word each morning to pray
I search with a need to find within the way
The precious key which will open my mind to see
As I discern the Word which now sets me free

For everything I learn is always such a delight
Which helps me keep my feet on a path so right
So I may be able to help some each day in need
While praying their hearts might soon believe

For once saved, life becomes a true joy to share
With many who come into our world each day
The grace which our Lord placed within us to bear
Hoping some by our encounter may now be saved

For we are an example if from your words we learn
What your wisdom and understanding help us to be
If we embrace their sweet treasure and then in turn
Help others to hold tightly your word’s eternal seed

And as we realize each day we also come to know
Inexplicably deeper in his love we will now grow
When in others we have planted His precious seed
As the love of our lord embraces those who believe

All of this will come about if we will only partake
Reading his precious word never wanting to forsake
For as each day so wonderfully comes to an end
We become drawn to his tender sweet word again.

And as we thank our God for what we truly discerned
Embracing the pure truth which in his word we learned
We find every night as we lay our heads down to sleep
His love embraces our dreams with a heavenly peace.
