Wells of the Word

"Isaac digged again the wells of water, which they had digged in the days of Abraham his father" (Genesis 26:18).  "I rejoice at Thy Word, as one that findeth great spoil" (Psalm 119:162).  "So shall the knowledge of wisdom be unto thy soul: when thou hast found it, then there shall be a reward, and thy expectation shall not be cut off" (Proverbs 24:14).  "For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope" (Romans 15:4). 

When Isaac dug the wells again
Which Abraham had dug before,
He found the springs of water then
Were like the spoils gained in war. 

The Lord rewards the diligence
Of those who search His precious Word
With comfort and with confidence
In blessings which He has assured. 

Whatever things have been recorded  
By prophets in the days of old,
Like hidden treasures, have rewarded
Our hearts with truths which they foretold. 

O Lord, we thank You for the wells
That spring forth from Your Word today
With truth that frees us and dispels
The darkness by the things You say.
