5 Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. 6 Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.

     7 Two things have I required of thee; deny me them not before I die: 8 Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me: 9 Lest I be full, and deny thee, and say, Who is the LORD? or lest I be poor, and steal, and take the name of my God in vain.(KJV)

1. How blest are they who hear God’s Word 
And keep and heed what they have heard! 
They wisdom daily gather; 
Their light shines brighter day by day, 
And while they tread life’s weary way, 
They have the oil of gladness 
To soothe their pain and sadness. 

2. God’s Word a treasure is to me, 
Through sorrow’s night my sun shall be, 
The shield of faith in battle. 
The Father’s hand hath written there 
My title as His child and heir, 
“The kingdom’s thine forever.” 
That promise faileth never. 

3. Today I was my Savior’s guest, 
My soul was here so richly blest, 
The Bread of Life receiving. 
Oh, may thereby my faith prevail, 
So that its fruits shall never fail 
Till my account is given 
Before the throne in heaven!
