Hymn/Song Information

FISH IN WAVE BIRD ON WING




The fish in wave, the bird on wing,
God bade the waters bear;
Each for our mortal bodyís food
His gracious hands prepare.


But other food, of richer cost,
The immortal spirit needs;
By faith it lives on every word
That from His mouth proceeds.


Faith springing from
the blood of Christ,
Has flowed oíer every land;
And sinners through
the vanquished world
Bow down to its command.


Its light the joy of Heavín reveals
To hearts made pure within;
And bids them seek by worthy deeds
Eternal crowns to win.


By faith the saints of old were strong
The lionís wrath to tame;
By faith they spurned
the tyrantís threats,
And scorned the raging flame.


Lord, grant that we
the path may tread
Whereon its light doth shine;
And gather, as we onward go,
The fruits of love divine.


O praise the Father; praise the Son,
On Whose most precious blood
Rests all our faith; and praise to Him
Who with Them both is God.
