Perfectly Taught in Perilous Times

"Remove from me the way of lying, and grant me Thy law" (Psalm 119:29).  "The law of the wise is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death" (Proverbs 13:14).  "Perilous times shall come.  For men shall be… ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth… All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works" (2 Timothy 3:1-17). 

In perilous times like today
As sinners are constantly lying,
We carry the truth of God's way
That rescues the lost who are dying. 

The Gospel of Christ a fountain
With life-giving truth for the lost,
Removing their sins like a mountain
That into the ocean is tossed. 

In times when our children are learning
From those who have never known truth,
May God give us hearts that are yearning
To rightfully train up our youth! 

In perilous times, Lord, we've sought
And found in Your Scriptures inspired
The truth You have perfectly taught
Above all we could have desired!
