Search and be Saved

"It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honor of kings is to search out a matter… so is good news from a far country" (Proverbs 25:2,25).   "Wilt thou be made whole?... Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth My Word, and believeth on Him that sent Me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life… Search the Scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of Me" (John 5:6,24,39). 

It is God's glory to conceal
The truth He calls us to search out. 
To those who search, He will reveal
His Gospel that removes all doubt. 

The Lord resists the prideful soul,
But to the humble heart He speaks
And asks him, "Wilt thou be made whole?"
To grant the healing that he seeks.

The Good News of so great salvation,
Which is concealed, shall be found
In Scriptures through their revelation
Where prophecies of Christ abound.  

O Lord, we see the time is short
To search the Scriptures, and be saved. 
So help us faithfully report
The truth which humble souls have craved.
