Jesus, thou everlasting word

Jesus, thou everlasting word

Published in 3 hymnals

Full Text

1 Jesus thou everlasting word!
Almighty God and Sov'reign Lord:
Who art from all eternity?
All things were made and form'd by thee.

2 Thou art the Lord or Earth & Heav'n,
By thee eternal life is giv'n:
Thou art the great and shining light
Which brings the way of truth to sight.

3 Jesus, the glorious son of God,
Took on himself our flesh and blood;
When he was born the Virgin's Son
To make the sons of men his own.

4 That mighty word is come to view,
Which Men or Angels never knew;
Till in the flesh it was reveal'd
And all the prophecies fulfill'd.

5 That blessed word to me reveal
My Lord! and let me taste and feel
That pow'rful word, and light divine,
With life and grace in me to shine.
