Seek then Speak

"Blessed are they that keep His testimonies, and that seek Him with the whole heart" (Psalm 119:2).  "The preparations of the heart in man, and the answer of the tongue, is from the LORD" (Proverbs 16:1).  "They said... We will every one do the imagination of his evil heart" (Jeremiah 18:12).  "By sound doctrine... convince the gainsayers.  For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers... whose mouths must be stopped" (Titus 1:9-11). 

There is a place we need to start
That we may speak with confidence: 
We're called to seek with our heart
The Lord who gives us our defense.   

Persuasion comes from God alone,
And all the evidence is His. 
Let us who love Him make it known
That He created all that is. 

Though some will hold a baseless view
Prescribed by their imagination,
Our God has shown us what is true: 
He is the Lord of all creation! 

In all creation, Lord, we trace
Your handiwork and loving favor. 
Let all who seek You speak with grace
To magnify You as our Savior!
