“But let him that glories glory in this: That he understands and knows Me, that I am the Lord, Who exercises loving-kindness, judgment and righteousness in the earth—for in these things I delight, says the Lord.”

Jeremiah 9:24

How quickly our eyes do focus

On the glitz and glitter of earth;

We look to men’s applause, fame and fortune

To help us find our worth.

But none of these can fill the void

That rests within our soul—

For it’s only when we glory in the Lord God alone

That we understand what the prophets of old foretold.

“Glory in this,” the Lord did say

To men of old and now.

“Spend your days in pursuit of knowing Me

Instead of worshipping earth’s sacred cows.

“In Me you’ll find true loving-kindness

And righteous judgment that’s always true—

For I am the God Who gives true wisdom

In all you think, say and do.

“Man’s lofty thoughts are many

And of Me they think so ill;

But, do not listen to their beckoning voices;

Instead, surrender to My sovereign will.

“I delight in those Who seek Me

With every part of their mind and heart;

To those who seek, they’ll surely find Me

And to them Myself I will impart.”

O Lord, how desperately we desire Thee

As we cry from bended knee;

Help us to desire You more than life itself—

For only in You can we truly be free.

Help us not to lust after the treasures of this earth

Or place our trust in them—

For it’s only when we glory in You and You alone

That we’re freed from vain glories and man’s whims.
