gold mine

Psalm 119:18 “Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in your law.” (NIV)*


Let me see the wonder

Of riches from your book, 

Endless words of hope

Awaiting those who look.


Show me golden nuggets

Hidden from dim eyes,

When I’m not really looking

They sometimes like to hide.


Rare and precious treasures

Invite me to come in,

His gold mine lies wide open

For those who will but dig.
