Jesus’ words were not His own ideas, but He spoke for the Father in Heaven. It’s still true of those words today.

     14 Now about the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the temple, and taught. 15 And the Jews marvelled, saying, How knoweth this man letters, having never learned? 16 Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me. 17 If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself. 18 He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.(KJV)

1. Father of mercies, in Thy Word 
What endless glory shines! 
Forever be Thy name adored 
For these celestial lines. 

2. Here may the blind and hungry come 
And light and food receive; 
Here shall the lowliest guest have room 
And taste and see and live. 

3. Here springs of consolation rise 
To cheer the fainting mind, 
And thirsting souls receive supplies 
And sweet refreshment find. 

4. Here the Redeemer’s welcome voice 
Spreads heavenly peace around, 
And life and everlasting joys 
Attend the blissful sound. 

5. Oh, may these heavenly pages be 
My ever dear delight; 
And still new beauties may I see 
And still increasing light! 

6. Divine Instructor, gracious Lord, 
Be Thou forever near; 
Teach me to love Thy sacred Word 
And view my Savior here.
