9932. The Word, The Uncreated Son

1 The Word, the uncreated Son,
When finite things began to be,
Existing, God with God alone,
Thou wast from all eternity!
There, in Thy Father’s bosom laid,
Ineffably begot by Him,
Thou wast, before the worlds were made,
God independent and supreme.

2 All-wise, all-good, almighty Lord,
God over all Thou always art,
Jehovah’s everlasting Word,
Spoken into Thy creature’s heart;
With God essentially the same,
Distinct in personality,
Thou art the absolute I AM,
And all things made were made by Thee.
