As I Search the Holy Scriptures

Prayerfully

1. As I search the holy scriptures,

Loving Father of mankind,

May my heart be blessed with wisdom,

And may knowledge fill my mind.

2. As I search the holy scriptures,

Touch my spirit, Lord, I pray.

May life’s myst’ries be unfolded

As I study day by day.

3. As I search the holy scriptures,

May thy mercy be revealed.

Soothe my troubled heart and spirit;

May my unseen wounds be healed.

4. As I search the holy scriptures,

Help me ponder and obey.

In thy word is life eternal;

May thy light show me the way.
