Word Like Fire Episode 20: O Word of God Incarnate

Download/stream the podcast here- Episode 20: O Word of God Incarnate

This week’s song uses a hymn text written by William W. How in 1867 with a new tune. It is a prayer of thanksgiving to God both for the gift of his word in the scriptures- and how they illuminate Christ, the
Word made flesh.

O Word of God Incarnate

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 o’er all the world 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 God’s host unfurled
It is a shining beacon above the darkling world
It is the chart and compass that o’er life’s 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 wand’ring pilgrims by this their path to trace
Till clouds and darkness ended, they see you face to face
