Hymn 186Play music
1 Thy word, O Lord, has been to us
A fountain, deep and clear;
To satisfy our thirst for Thee,
Our hearts to soothe and cheer.
2 Its light that shone in days of old,
Still shines forever bright;
To lead us safely on Thy way
And guide our steps aright.
3 Thy precepts wise teach us that we
Live not by bread alone,
Therefore our prayers for strength and grace
Rise daily to Thy throne.
4 O may Thy word still be to us
A never failing spring;
May we find comfort, hope and peace
Renealh Thy shelt'ring wing.
