“Search the Scriptures,” Jesus said,
“Where eternal life ye see;
These your study should be made,
For they testify of Me.”
Search the Scriptures, day or night,
Mines of knowledge they contain,
All who search therein aright,
Stores of heavenly wisdom gain.
Search the Scriptures evermore
With a docile, humble mind;
Light and aid from heaven implore,
All their hidden wealth to find.
Search the Scriptures, young and old,
Learn their sayings well by heart;
Half their worth can ne’er be told;
Endless blessings they impart.
