Words for the Walk

"God spake all these words, saying... Ye have seen that I have talked with you from heaven" (Exodus 20:1,22).  "The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.  Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, Thou shalt preserve them from this generation forever" (Psalm 12:6,7).  "Thy Father's commandment... shall lead thee... keep thee... talk with thee" (Proverbs 6:20-22).  "I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus" (Philippians 3:14). 

When God talked from heaven to man,
He said what man needed to hear
To walk in the way of His plan
And purify him by His fear. 

Thank God that His words are preserved
To lead, keep, and talk with us still! 
When we from His purpose have swerved,
He guides us back into His will. 

The Lord knows how often we walk
Like sheep that are going astray. 
How graciously yet He will talk
With words that reprove us today. 

Your words, Lord, now shine in the dark,  
So that we may walk without falling
As we're pressing on toward the mark  
Beheld in the prize of our calling.
