If the Lord spoke today to ask my one wish,
I would bow in His presence and answer Him this --
To live what I've learned through reading His word,
Through prayers He has answered and sermons I've heard.
For it is easy to listen, but so hard to apply
The things He has taught me to the days of my life.
To live what I've learned -- that's my one wish;
For the Word bids me do it and my Father will bless.

But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and
continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer
of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does.
