Merciful Manna

"The children of Israel did eat manna forty years, until they came to a land inhabited" (Exodus 16:35).  "What is man, that Thou art mindful of him?  And the son of man, that Thou visitest him?" (Psalm 8:4).  "The LORD giveth wisdom... that thou mayest walk in the way of good men" (Proverbs 2:6,20).  "But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ... for the edifying of the body of Christ" (Ephesians 4:7,12). 

The manna that God had extended,
Which came down from heaven above
Until Israel's journey had ended,
Exhibits God's wonderful love. 

The question concerning man's worth
Was raised in the light of such care
That God demonstrates in the earth,
So mindful, He'd visit us there. 

As manna was given back then,
God's teaches our hearts every day
To walk in the way of good men,
As we hear His Word and obey. 

How merciful, Lord, is Your measure
Of grace for our edification,
Like manna each day that we treasure  
As gifts You provide with salvation!
