Treasures of Truth

"Observe and hear… that which is good and right in the sight of the LORD thy God" (Deuteronomy 12:28).   "Whoso is wise, and will observe these things, even they shall understand the lovingkindness of the LORD" (Psalm 107:43).  "But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear… Therefore every scribe which is instructed unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and old" (Matthew 13:16,52). 

We have observed that which is good
Within the Word of God explored,
And thereby we have understood
The lovingkindness of the Lord. 

How blest the sight is of the eyes
From which the Lord has dried all tears.
How blest the sound is to the wise
Of truth they treasure in their ears.

As scribes who write instruction down,
Preserving truths that they have heard,
The blessing of our Lord shall crown
The hearts of those who love His Word. 

O Lord, we thank You for the treasures
Of truth to make us free indeed
As Your instruction rightly measures
And meets our deep, eternal need.
