PRAISE TO YOU ETERNAL WORD

This hymn may be sung to any tune with metre 8.7.8.7.8.7  e.g. Praise my soul the King of Heaven.

 

By your Word Almighty Father
All creation came to be
Beauty of the earth and heavens
Called forth from eternity
Word of life from the beginning 
One with God in majesty

In the scriptures we behold you
As the God who speaks in love
By your Son you then spoke to us
Gift of grace from realms above
Radiant light of your great glory
Word who shows the Father's love 

Saving Word you dwelt among us
Took on flesh and bore our pain
Shared in all our joys and sorrows
Died for us and rose again
Now ascended to the Father
Glorious Word with mercy reigns

Grant us Lord the grace to listen

Help us trust and live your Word

May it be a lamp to guide us

As we follow you O Lord

Praise to you Almighty Father
Spirit and Eternal Word
