O Blessèd Word

Eternal life is in God’s Word
For dead and dying men;
By it alone we know the Lord,
Unseen by mortal ken.

Refrain
O blessèd Word, O gracious Word,
We'll love thee more and more;
Be thou our Life, our Strength, our Sword,
’Till earthly strife is o’er.

God's strength is in His holy Word;
We need it ev’ry day;
In all our conflicts this the sword
Our spirit foes to slay.

By this same Word we know our task,
And how it should be done;
How now to live, and how at last
Our crown is to be won.

—by Leander W. Munhall (1843–1934)

Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart... Jeremiah 15:16
