Fountain and Foundation

"The children of men put their trust under the shadow of Thy wings… for with Thee is the fountain of life: in Thy light shall we see light" (Psalm 36:7,9).  "My son, be wise, and make My heart glad, that I may answer him that reproacheth Me.  A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself" (Proverbs 27:11,12).  "Study to show thyself approved unto God… The foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are His.  And, Let everyone that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity" (2 Timothy 2:15,19). 

Within this dry and darkened land,
A living fountain freely springs,  
And in God's light we understand
That there is rest beneath His wings. 

We live this life in heaven's light
As God equips us with His grace
To do what's pleasing in His sight
And find in Him our hiding place. 

We study that we may be found
Approved by God (the perfect measure). 
The blessings of our Lord abound
To those who will pursue His pleasure. 

O Lord, Your fountain and foundation
Of life and light that You reveal
Delight us in Your great salvation
And mark us with Your Spirit's seal.
