Hymn/Song Information

An open Bible for the world




An open Bible for the world—
May this our glorious motto be!
On ev’ry breeze its flag unfurled
Shall scatter blessings rich and free.

Blest Word of God! send forth thy light.
O’er every land and every sea,
Till all who wander in the night
Are led to God and heaven by thee.



Where’er it goes its golden light,
Streaming as from an unveiled sun,
Shall dissipate the clouds of night,
Undo the work that sin has done.

Blest Word of God! send forth thy light.
O’er every land and every sea,
Till all who wander in the night
Are led to God and heaven by thee.



It shows to men the Father’s face,
All radiant with forgiving love;
And to the lost of Adam’s race
Proclaims sweet mercy from above.

Blest Word of God! send forth thy light.
O’er every land and every sea,
Till all who wander in the night
Are led to God and heaven by thee.



It offers rest to weary hearts,
It comforts those who sit in tears;
To all who faint, it strength imparts,
And gilds with hope th’eternal years.

Blest Word of God! send forth thy light.
O’er every land and every sea,
Till all who wander in the night
Are led to God and heaven by thee.
