Hymn/Song Information

Thou art the everlasting Word The Father




Thou art the everlasting Word,
The Fatherís only Son;
God manifestly seen and heard,
And heavenís belovŤd One:

Worthy, O Lamb of God, art Thou
That every knee to Thee should bow.



In Thee most perfectly expressed
The Fatherís glories shine;
Of the full deity possessed,
Eternally divine:

Worthy, O Lamb of God, art Thou
That every knee to Thee should bow.



True image of the infinite,
Whose essence is concealed;
brightness of uncreated light;
The heart of God revealed:

Worthy, O Lamb of God, art Thou
That every knee to Thee should bow.



But the high mysteries of Thy name
An angelís grasp transcend;
The Father only glorious claim!
The Son can comprehend:

Worthy, O Lamb of God, art Thou
That every knee to Thee should bow.



Yet loving Thee, on whom His love
Ineffable doth rest,
Thy members all, in Thee, above,
As one with Thee are blest.

Worthy, O Lamb of God, art Thou
That every knee to Thee should bow.



Throughout the universe of bliss,
The centre Thou, and sun;
The eternal theme of praise is this,
To heavenís belovŤd One:

Worthy, O Lamb of God, art Thou
That every knee to Thee should bow.



Of the vast universe of bliss,
The centre Thou, and Sun;
The eternal theme of praise is this,
To Heaven's beloved One,

Worthy, O Lamb of God, art Thou
That every knee to Thee should bow.



---Alternative verses---


Thou art the everlasting Word,
The Father's only Son;
God manifest, God seen and heard,
The heaven's beloved One;

Worthy, O Lamb of God, art Thou
That every knee to Thee should bow.



In Thee, most perfectly expressed,
The Father's self doth shine;
Fulness of Godhead, too: the Blest,
Eternally Divine;

Worthy, O Lamb of God, art Thou
That every knee to Thee should bow.



Image of the Infinite Unseen,
Whose being none can know;
Brightness of light no eye hath seen,
God's love revealed below;

Worthy, O Lamb of God, art Thou
That every knee to Thee should bow.



The higher mysteries of Thy fame
The creature's grasp transcend;
The Father only Thy blest name
Of Son can comprehend.

Worthy, O Lamb of God, art Thou
That every knee to Thee should bow.



Yet loving Thee, on whom His love
Ineffable doth rest,
The worshippers, O Lord, above,
As one with Thee, are blest;

Worthy, O Lamb of God, art Thou
That every knee to Thee should bow.
