Dear Hymnary friend,

We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. Please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going?

Last month, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1 million sessions from approximately 750,000 users. What a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns. And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546 , or you can click the Donate button below.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,
Harry Plantinga

670. O Word of God Incarnate

1 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.

2 The Church from her dear Master,
received the gift divine,
and still that light is lifted
on all the earth to shine.
It is the chart and compass
that, all life's voyage through,
'mid mists and rocks and quicksands,
still guides, O Christ, to you.

3 O make your Church, dear Savior,
a lamp of burnished gold,
to bear before the nations
your true light as of old;
teach us, your wandering pilgrims,
by this our path to trace,
till, clouds and darkness ended,
we see you face to face!
