Ujamaa Christian Poetry

The Spirit's Sword

Thy Word's a lamp unto my feet
Is what the Good Book said;
But can it guide you day to day
With pages you haven't read?

Your spiritual life depends upon
Time in the Word of God.
In this world of fearful things
We need our feet to be shod.

Hear the Word with a noble heart.
Keep it and bear fruit
That's the promise in His Word.
Grow as a tender shoot.

The seed will grow when it's planted
In receptive soil.
Invest your life in eternal things
Where it cannot spoil.

Hide God's Word within your heart.
Let its lamp shine.
Listen to it and do what's right.
Abide in the Vine.
