GOD’S WORD TO HIS CHILDREN

BY F. E. MARSH

THE Word is Milk to feed (1 Peter 2:2),
    Th’ imparted life (1 Peter 1:23);
This is the fare we need (Jer. 15:16),
    In peace and strife (1 John 2:14).

The Word is Food to mould (Acts 20:32),
    The man within (Eph. 3:16);
And makes him strong and bold (Joel 2:11),
    The fight to win (Rev. 12:11).

The Word is Honey sweet (Psalm 119:103),
    Refined and pure (Psalm 18:30, M.).
It fills with joy complete (1 Thess. 1:6).
    Unspoil’d and sure (Psalm 93:5).

The Word’s a Living Fount (Psalm 36:9),
    ’Tis pure and clear (Psalm 12:6);
It makes the soul to mount (Isaiah 40:31)
    To Christ most dear (1 Peter 2:4-6).

The Word’s a Running Stream (Isaiah 33:21),
    ’Tis broad and deep (Psalm 65:9);
His love in it doth gleam (Jer. 31:3),
    The soul to keep (Jude 21).

The Word’s a Fire of Love (Jer. 20:9),
    To make aglow (Psalm 39:3)
The soul, to things above (Col. 3:1).
    While here below (Prov. 15:24).

The Word’s a Lamp to light (Psalm 119:105),
    Through life’s dark way (Prov. 6:23).
It guides us safe and right (Isaiah 58:11).
    To realms of day (Psalm 43:3).

The Word’s a Safe Guide Book (Psalm 73:24)
    To map the way (Psalm 119:9).
To this we need to look (James 1:25),
    Lest we should stray (Psalm 119:11).

The Word’s a Mirror bright (James 1:25),
    In which is seen (Job 42:5-6)
Dark self—a hideous sight (Rom. 7:18);
    The flesh—unclean (Isaiah 64:6).

The Word’s a Hammer hard (Jer. 23:29),
    The heart it breaks (2 Kings 22:11-13)
Its force can none retard (John 5:25),
    The soul it shakes (Jer. 23:9).

The Word’s a Balm to heal (Psalm 107:20),
    The broken heart (Psalm 147:3);
New life, and strength, and zeal (John 6:63)
    It doth impart (1 Kings 18:1).

The Word’s a Girdle sure (Eph. 6:14)
    To brace the loins (Luke 12:35);
It girds us to endure (Psalm 18:39),
    ’What truth enjoins (1 Peter 1:13).

The Word’s the Spirit’s sword (Eph. 6:17),
    As sharp as steel (Heb. 4:12),
To kill unholy words (1 Thess. 2:13);
    Its power we feel (Acts 19:20).

The Word’s the Pilgrim’s Stay (Isaiah 50:10),
    While here below (Isaiah 50:4, R.V.);
It helps us on our way (Psalm 119:54),
    As home we go (2 Cor. 5:8, R.V.).

The Word’s a Casket rare (Psalm 139:17),
    Its gems are great (2 Peter 1:4);
Its cost can none declare (Job 28:16)
    On earth’s estate (Psalm 119:72).
