Like a refreshing fountain

Is the word of the Lord,

And like snow that waters the precious earth;

Never void will return His word.

It is prosperous in all its ways

And specific tasks it will accomplish;

It is pure and inspiring

And enveloped with much bliss.

It will never return void

Because once the gospel is heard,

It will either soften or will harden the heart

Through God’s Spirit in His word.

When the seed is sown,

On the heart’s soil it will depend,

And whether the birds come to devour same

Or whether a good crop it will tend.

When the seed falls on good soil

Much joy and peace is found,

Where the trees will clap their hands

And where hills break forth in sound.

God’s word is everlasting

And will accomplish many things,

Where miracles and healings

Restoration it will bring.

Instead of thorns there will surely be

An assortment of all trees,

With an abundance of all delicious fruit

Where prosperity we see.

’For as the heavens are higher than the earth’

So are God’s delightful thoughts,

So precious and refreshing

When they are sincerely taught.
