O Word of God incarnate O wisdom from on high




O Word of God incarnate,
O wisdom from on high,
O truth unchanged, unchanging,
O light of our dark sky,
We praise Thee for the radiance
That from the hallowed page,
A lantern to our footsteps
Shines on from age to age.


The Church from her dear Master
Received the gift divine,
And still that light she lifteth
oer all the earth to shine:
It is the golden casket
Where gems of truth are stored;
It is the heaven-drawn picture
Of Christ, the living Word.


It floateth like a banner
Before Gods Host unfurled
It shineth like a beacon
Above the darkling world:
It is the chart and compass
That oer lifes surging sea,
That mists and rocks and quicksands
Still guide, O Christ, to Thee.


O make Thy Church, dear Saviour,
A lamp of burnished gold,
To bear before the nations
Thy true light as of old;
O teach Thy wandering pilgrims
By this their path to trace,
Till, clouds and darkness ended,
They see Thee face to face!.
