Ever-learning Eyes (a poem)

Ever-learning Eyes

by J. Randal Matheny

To teach and defend the gospel news,
Is glory for God in heaven!
Eschewing opinions of men, and views,
Avoids the scribe’s old leaven.

Read Scripture with ever-learning eyes,
Its ancient pages, anew;
The humble hears the Word to be wise,
To sift the false from the true.

With studied notes and careful words,
We seek the Lord to obey;
The God who feeds the little birds,
Will carry us all the Way.
