For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit. (2 Peter 1:21 ESV)
Hymn ELH 232:1,2,6 How Precious is the Book Divine
How precious is the Book Divine,
By inspiration given!
Bright as a lamp its doctrines shine
To guide our souls to heaven,
To guide our souls to heaven.
Its light, descending from above
Our gloomy world to cheer,
Displays a Savior’s boundless love
And brings His glories near,
And brings His glories near.
This lamp through all the dreary night
Of life shall guide our way
Till we behold the clearer light
Of an eternal day,
Of an eternal day.
O Holy Spirit, thank You for giving the very Word of God to me and all people. Teach me through that Word and help it to spread throughout the world. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
