Wealth of His Word

"The judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.  More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold" (Psalm 19:9,10).  "There is that maketh himself rich, yet hath nothing: there is that maketh himself poor, yet hath great riches" (Proverbs 13:7).  "When ye received the Word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the Word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe" (1 Thessalonians 2:13). 

The judgments of the Lord are true
With greater wealth than much fine gold. 
The riches therein we may view
Have greater worth than can be told. 

When we have realized we're poor 
By heaven's true eternal measure,
The Word of God that we explore
Will then unveil endless treasure. 

The Word of God that we receive
Will open heaven's treasure chest
And work in those who will believe,
Imparting wisdom, wealth, and rest. 

O Lord, we thank You for Your Word
By which we have our truest wealth,
By which our hearts are also stirred 
To show the lost Your saving health.
