On this very subject, Derek Bigg one of members wrote these words:

 

How searching is God’s word,

How stirring to the ear,

How challenging to mind and heart –

Be careful how you hear!

 

The devil lurks close by,

His purpose firm and clear;

To snatch away God’s precious word –

Be careful how you hear!

 

The joy of rootless souls

Will fade and disappear

When God’s word tests through trial or pain –

Be careful how you hear!

 

Life’s pleasures, riches, cares

Should breed a healthy fear

Lest they crowd out God’s holy word –

Be careful how you hear!

 

To noble-hearted souls

God’s word is always near;

They hold it fast in fruitful lives

And daily persevere.
