Thy Word is Like a Garden, Lord

 Thy Word is Like a Garden, Lord
By: Edwin Hodder

Thy Word is like a garden, Lord, with flowers bright and fair, 
And everyone who seeks may pluck a lovely cluster there. 
Thy Word is like a deep, deep mine; and jewels rich and rare 
are hidden in its mighty depths for every searcher there.
Thy Word is like a starry host: a thousand rays of light
are seen to guide the traveler and make his pathway bright. 
Thy Word is like an armory, where soldiers may repair;
And find, for life's long battle day, all needful weapons there. 
 
Oh, may I love Thy precious Word, may I explore the mine, 
may I its fragrant flowers glean, may light upon me shine!
Oh, may I find my armor there! Thy Word my trusty sword,
I'll learn to fight with every foe the battle of the Lord.
Matthew 6:28
And why take ye thought for rainment? Consider the lilies of the field,
how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:

Psalms 119:140
Thy word is very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it.

Psalms 119:127
Therefore I love thy commandments above gold; yea, above
fine gold.
