Thy Word

And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. (John 1:14)

The Word of the Lord is precious and rare
It is quick and sharp and perfectly fair

From age of old yet eternally new
The Word of the Lord is tested and true

Defense for the soul by the Spirit’s sword
Heaven was made by the Word of the Lord

Far greater than words of a manmade creed
God’s Word is an incorruptible seed

Oh how sweet are thy words to our taste
Savoring rich morsels without haste

For man shall not live long by bread alone
But by every good Word of God made known

Without it we stumble in dark defeat
The Lord’s Word is a lamp unto our feet

Within Your gospel a new hope is found
The living Word of God cannot be bound

Will it be the stone upon which we fall?
Or the foundation on which we stand tall?

The Lord said, ‘Is not my Word like fire?’
The spark to ignite your heart’s desire

Oh Lord, Your perfect Law of Liberty
The Word made flesh is our one guarantee

2 Samuel 22:31 As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all them that trust in him.

Psalm 33:6 By the word of the Lord the heavens were made and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth

Psalm 119:103 How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!

Psalm 119:105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

Jeremiah 23:29 Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?

Matthew 4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

Ephesians 6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart

1 Peter 1:23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.

James 1:25 But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.
