Representative Text

1 Jesus, thy word is my delight,
There grace and truth are seen;
O could I study day and night,
And meditate therein!

2 O Lamb of God, the book unseal,
And to our hearts explain;

And heavenly wisdom gain.

Make known to us, dear Lord;
To us the promises apply,
Recorded in thy word.
