    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.
