Deep and precious,
Strong and gracious
Is the word of God above,
To the Savior’s arm of love.
Unto all the word is given:
Jesus is the way to heaven.
Hast Thou shown our fallen race!
Times may alter,
Worlds may falter,
Nothing moves Thy word of grace.
With Thy word Thy grace abideth,
And for all our needs provideth.
By Thy merit,
Through the Spirit
Draw all sinners, Lord, to Thee.
Sin and error,
Death and terror
By Thy word shall vanquished be.
Guide us all through life’s straight portal,
Bear us into life immortal.
