Give ear, O my people, to my teaching; incline your ears to the words of my mouth! I will open my mouth in a parable; I will utter dark sayings from of old, things that we have heard and known, that our fathers have told us. We will not hide them from their children, but tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the Lord, and his might, and the wonders that he has done. (Psalm 78:1-4 ESV)
Hymn ELH 29:2 Open Now Thy Gates of Beauty
Lord, my God, I come before Thee;
Do not hide Thy face from me.
Where we find Thee and adore Thee,
There a heav’n on earth must be.
To my heart, O enter Thou;
Let it be Thy temple now.
Heavenly Father, thank you for providing Your Word and protecting it, unchanged, from generation to generation. Help me to treasure it and to pass it on to future generations, that they may also hear of Your wondrous love. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
