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

For everything I learn, becomes 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 sincerely their hearts will 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 tightly hold 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 God embraces those who now believe

This will all come about if we choose to partake
Reading His precious word never wanting to forsake
For as each new day 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 from his word we now learn
We find each night as we lay our heads down to sleep
His love embraces our dreams with His heavenly peace.

Isaiah 11:3
His delight will be in the fear of the LORD. He won’t
judge by what his eyes see, nor decide disputes by what
his ears hear,

Hosea 14:9
Whoever is wise, let him understand these things. Whoever
is discerning, let him know them. For the ways of the LORD
are right: the righteous follow his example, but the
rebellious stumble in them.

1 Kings 3:9
“So give Your servant an understanding heart to judge Your
people to discern between good and evil. For who is able to
judge this great people of Yours?”
