I yearn for your word
Oh lord, I want to own it
And possess it in my heart

it’s my  pearl of great worth
 that I will honor
And treasure always

For it is the word that
Gives  life, and also heals…
It is the word that saves

Blessed was the day that
I touched the word
Receiving  it in my heart,  for it
Renewed my soul and spirit,
Indeed it set me free

And its importance is very real
For when we are saved by it…
It becomes the first thing that
Satan  seeks to steal away

For your word is the fire
That sets my love aflame
Deep within my heart…

For my one true love…You
