LIFE WHICH GOD'S INCARNATE WORD




The life, which Godís Incarnate Word
Lived here below with men,
Three blest evangelists record
With Heavín inspirŤd pen.


John soars on high, beyond the three,
To God the Fatherís throne;
And shows in what deep mystery
The Word with God is One.


Upon the Saviorís loving breast
Invited to recline,
íTwas thence he drew, in moments blest,
Rich stores of truth divine.


And thence did that angelic love
His inmost spirit fill,
Which, once enkindled from above,
Breathes in his pages still.


Jesu, the virginís holy Son,
We praise Thee and adore,
Who art with God the Father One
And Spirit evermore.
