I love to read the holy scriptures
And every time I do
I feel the Spirit start to grow within my heart
A testimony that they’re true
Search, ponder, and pray are the things that I must do
The Spirit will gude and deep inside
I’ll know the scriptures are true
I think when I read that sweet story of old
When Jesus was here among men
How he called little children like lambs to His fold
I would like to have been with him then
I wish that his hands had been placed on my head,
That his arms had been thrown around me,
That I might have seen his kind look when he said,
“Let the little ones come unto me.”
So, prayerfully I’ll read the scriptures
Each day my whole life through.
I’ll come to understand.
I’ll heed the Lord’s command
And live as he would have me do.
