Glory to God, who gave the word

Glory to God, who gave the word

Full Text

1 Glory to GOD, who gave the word
And bid the preachers cry;
Who caus'd his will to be proclaim'd,
And brought salvation nigh.

2 LORD, ever give us of this bread,
And grant us ears to hear;
Hearts to receive the heav'nly feed,
And bring forth fruit with fear.

3 O may thy word direct our path,
And guide our fault'ring feet;
Direct us in the living way,
And to thy mercy seat!

4 Fill every hungry soul, that cries,
From thine exhaustless store;
And let no one go empty hence,
But taste, and pray for more.

5 Let all thy children, LORD, be fed,
With the eternal word;
Be wise, and stronger grow thereby,
Increasing in the LORD.
