In the beginning was the Word,
the Word by which the world was given birth,
the only Word that holds all things together
and brought salvation to the earth.
This Word is with and is our God,
that Word which is the light of all mankind.
This Word which is a lamp unto our footsteps,
the Word that gives sight to the blind.
The Word comes from the mouth of God
and It shall not return with empty hands.
It will accomplish all that God desires of it
and shall fulfill all His commands.
This Word is light, this word is truth.
It is food for the hungry and the poor.
It’s the Word of prophets in our hearts today,
in whom we’re filled forever more.
The Word of God in form of man
pitched his tent in a body made of clay,
come from the Father, full of grace and truth,
that we might by this Word obey.
Whom should we turn to, where to go?
You alone have the words of lasting life!
Oh Lord, we believe you, all that we can know
you’re the Holy One of God, the Christ!
