On Christ the Word I’ll Meditate—sola Scriptura

“All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:16-17).

“This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it” (Joshua 1:8a).

On Christ the Word I’ll meditate,

His gospel truths appropriate

Into the sinews of my soul,

My holy longing, heavenly goal.


All Scripture profits for reproof,

For doctrine and for learning Truth.

By it the man of God’s equipped,

By sacred ink, by holy script.


Alone the Scripture makes me wise,

Exposes gods I idolize;           

By it alone my steps are lit,

My path revealed by holy writ.


God’s will revealed, I will submit

And in my heart his truths commit.

In gospel light I see the Light;

By faith, my Savior fills my sight!


On Christ the Word I’ll meditate,

My loving Lord and potentate—

Come rule and reign within my heart,

My mind, my soul, my every part.
