056 I Treasure God's Word
You speak to lead me forward, so now my life bears light. Your chastisement left me fearful, but I didn't understand Your heart. Your stern words revealed my nature; I doubted what You said. I hurt You in the process, I've been such a fool. Foolish was I, not knowing Your word is life. But because of these truths, I've come so far since. No matter when or where, Your life-bearing words and grace let me see how Christ is truth, the way, and the life. He's my one and only, He's my one and only.
The world is always turning, but the truth never changes. Nothing is more precious than life; You are worthy of all praises. To lose Your word is to lose the real life. And if I ever leave Your word, You know my disposition will never change. I must work harder to practice Your word, grasp Your will. I see now that Christ is truth, the way, and the life. He's my one and only, He's my one and only. I may be poor, I may fall sick, but I'll never leave Your word. My flesh may be forgone, and my family torn, but I won't betray the truth. He's my one and only, He's my one and only. He's my one and only, He's my one and only, He's my God.
