Hymn/Song Information

O Word of God incarnate O wisdom




O Word of God incarnate,
O Wisdom from on high,
O Truth unchanged, unchanging,
O Light of our dark sky:
We praise You for the radiance
that from the hallowed page,
A Lantern to our footsteps,
shines on from age to age.


The Church from You,
our Savior, received the Gift divine,
And still that Light is lifted
over all the earth to shine.
It is the sacred Vessel
where gems of truth are stored;
It is the heaven drawn Picture
of Christ, the living Word.


The Scripture is a banner
before Godís host unfurled;
It is a shining Beacon
above the darkling world.
It is the Chart and Compass
that over lifeís surging tide,
Mid mists and rocks and quicksands,
to You, O Christ, will guide.


O make your Church,
dear Savior, a lamp of purest gold,
To bear before the nations
Your true light as of old.
O teach your wandering pilgrims
by this their path to trace,
Till, clouds and darkness ended,
they see You face to face.
