O Christian, search the Scriptures! - A Song for the times
(Hannah K. Burlingham/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

A Song for the times.

1. O Christian, search the Scriptures!
  Search them today!
Be firm and true in purpose,
  heed what they say.

2. The still small voice is speaking!
  Mark every word!
When Satan questions, answer –
  "Thus saith the Lord!"

3. For guidance and direction,
  ask not the blind!
They, in divine perfection,
  no beauty find.

4. When scoffers mock thine ardour
  laugh at thy toil –
O Christian! work the harder,
  gain richer spoil!

5. In holy, patient daring, –
wisdom divine –
no time or labour sparing,
  search thou the mine.

6. 'Twill yield the sweetest pleasure,
  surest reward;
there's rich, enduring treasure,
  hid in the Word.

7. O Christian, search the Scriptures!
  Search them today!
Be firm and true in purpose,
  heed what they say.

Hannah K. Burlingham, Wayside Songs, 1901, 159-160.
