The Excellency of the Bible by Isaac Watts -A Poem for Children-

 

The Excellency of the Bible

Great God, with wonder and praise
On all thy works I look;
But still thy wisdom, power, and grace
Shine brightest in thy book.

The stars that in their courses roll
Have much instruction given;
But thy good word informs my soul
How I may climb to heaven.

The fields provide me food; and show
The goodness of the Lord;
But fruits of life and glory grow
In thy most holy word.

Here are my choicest  treasures hid,
Here my best comfort lies,
Here my desires are satisfied,
And hence my hopes arise.

Lord, make me understand  thy law.
Show what my faults have been;
And from thy gospel let me draw
Pardon for all my sin.

Here would I learn how Christ has died,
to save my soul from hell:
Not all the books on earth beside
Such heavenly wonders tell.

Then let me love my Bible more,
And take a fresh delight,
By day to day read these wonders o’er,
And meditate by night.

    Becky,
    You are in my thoughts so often, my friend, and I'm praying for you and Norma. I love you, and I wish I could encourage you and cry with you across a table as we reflect on God's mercies together. This is one time I do wish I was on Facebook so I could keep up with you there.

    Much, much love.
