Hymn/Song Information

Only begotten Word of God eternal




Only begotten,
Word of God eternal,
Lord of Creation,
merciful and mighty,
List to Thy servants,
when their tuneful voices
Rise to Thy presence.


Thus in our solemn
Feast of Dedication,
Graced with returning
rites of due devotion,
Ever Thy children,
year by year rejoicing,
Chant in Thy temple.


Here in our sickness
healing grace aboundeth,
Light in our blindness,
in our toil refreshment;
Sin is forgiven,
hope o’er fear prevaileth,
Joy over sorrow.


Hallowed this dwelling
where the Lord abideth,
This is none other than
the gate of Heaven;
Strangers and pilgrims,
making homes eternal,
Pass through its portals.


Lord, we beseech Thee,
as we throng Thy temple,
By Thy past blessings,
by Thy present bounty,
Smile on Thy children,
and with tender mercy,
Hear our petitions.


God in three Persons,
Father everlasting,
Son co-eternal, ever blessèd Spirit,
Thine be the glory,
praise and adoration,
Now and forever.
