Redeemed Hymn 98 – O Word of God Incarnate

“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly” -Col 3:16

1 O word of God incarnate,

O wisdom from on high,

O truth unchanged, unchanging,

O light of our dark sky,

We praise Thee for the radiance

That from the hallowed page,

A lantern to our footsteps,

Shines on from age to age.


2 The Church from her dear Master

Received the gift divine,

And still that light she lifteth,

O’er all the earth to shine;

It is the heaven-drawn picture

Of Christ, the living word;


3 It floateth like a banner

Before God’s host unfurled;

It shineth like a beacon

Above the darkling world; it is the chart and compass

That, o’er life’s surging sea,

‘Mid mists, and rocks, and quicksands,

Still guides, O Chirst, to Thee.


4 O make Thy Church, dear Saviour,

A lamp of burnished gold,

To bear before the nations

Thy true light, as of old;

O teach Thy wandering pilgrims

By this their path to trace,

Till, clouds and darkness ended,

They see Thee face to face.
