Lyrics

  1. 1. As I search the holy scriptures,
    Loving Father of mankind,
    May my heart be blessed with wisdom,
    And may knowledge fill my mind.
  2. 2. As I search the holy scriptures,
    Touch my spirit, Lord, I pray.
    May life’s myst’ries be unfolded
    As I study day by day.
  3. 3. As I search the holy scriptures,
    May thy mercy be revealed.
    Soothe my troubled heart and spirit;
    May my unseen wounds be healed.
  4. 4. As I search the holy scriptures,
    Help me ponder and obey.
    In thy word is life eternal;
    May thy light show me the way.
