1 Precious Word from God in heaven,
Full of blessedness to me,
All my trust to Thee is given,
And my springs all rise in Thee;
I in Thee find all I need,
That my soul to God can lead.
2 Gracious Spirit, Thou Who showest
In the Word the Father's heart,
And all needful help bestowest,
Light and sense to me impart,
That I may the riches see
Which God's Word here offers me.
3 In its solemn contemplation
From vain cares let me be free,
And in prayerful adoration,
Stay Thou all my thoughts on Thee,
That the world may not annoy
While I make Thy Word my joy.
4 What I read, help me to heed it;
What Thou sayest, let me do;
Strength to faith grant as I need it,
And remind me still anew
That the faith that counts above
Is e'er active here in love.
5 Let Thy grace sustain, protect me,
That my ways ne'er from Thee part;
Thy enlight'ning Word direct me;
Seal this treasure in my heart,
That my faith may steadfast prove,
Till I walk by sight above.
