"Mine eyes prevent the night watches, that I might meditate in Thy Word… All Thy commandments are truth" (Psalm 119:148,151). "The name of the LORD is a strong tower… The ear of the wise seeketh knowledge… Death and life are in the power of the tongue" (Proverbs 18:10,15,21). "Then said Isaiah… Hear the Word of the LORD of hosts" (Isaiah 39:5). "O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments, and His ways past finding out!" (Romans 11:33).
How marvelous the nights became,
Providing time for meditation,
When I first called upon the name
Of Christ, who showed me His salvation!
How precious is the silent hour
Of meditation on His Word!
His name is like a mighty tower
To hearts that heed what they have heard.
God's Word addresses old and young
With truth about eternity:
Both death and life are in the tongue
That holds the truth that makes us free!
Your Word is marvelous, O Lord,
With proof that leaves no room for doubt;
Our meditation has explored
Your ways which are past finding out!
