O God, our Lord, Your holy Word

Full Text

1 O God, our Lord,
Your holy Word
Was long a hidden treasure
Till to its place
It was by grace
Restored in fullest measure.
For this today
Our thanks we say
And gladly glorify you.
Your mercy show
And grace bestow
On all who still deny you.

2 Salvation true
By faith in you,
That is your Gospel's preaching,
The heart and core
Of Bible lore
In all its sacred teaching.
In Christ we must
Put all our trust,
Not in our deeds or labor;
With conscience pure
And heart secure
Love you, Lord, and our neighbor.

3 Lord, you alone
This work have done
By your free grace and favor.
All who believe
Will grace receive
Through Jesus Christ, our Savior.
And though the foe
Would overthrow
Your Word with grim endeavor,
What plan he tries,
It always dies;
Your Word will stand forever.

4 You are my Lord,
And by your Word
Death holds no dreadful terrors;
Your precious blood,
My highest good,
Has blotted out my errors.
My thanks to you!
Your Word is true,
You keep your promise ever.
While here I live,
Your grace you give
And heaven's bliss forever.

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
