The questions came one cloudless night
While gazing at the stars so bright:
Is there a caring God above
Who's saving people with His love?
What happens on that heaven'nly throne
As hurting people pray and groan?
Why has Jesus remained away
And decreed such prolonged delay?
Am I ready for His return?
Is there some special truth to learn?
Then came a gentle voice so slight,
That touched my heart with words just right:
"Take time, My precious one, to hear;
Your Bible pages speak so clear.
My sanct'ry has abundant light;
Will furnish ev'ry answer right.
Forgotten truth is there to find,
So let My temple charm your mind.
That temple where your Savior lives;
The one who intercedes and gives;
He gives these stars their sparkling light
And guides them gently through the night;
So please ask guidance as you read,
For Bible study He will lead.
