Representative Text

1. O Word of God, how marvelous
Thy wisdom and thy power!
How manifold thy mightiness
To meet our need each hour!

Refrain
O Word of God, how wondrously
Does thy sweet voice resound;
What gracious loving kindnesses
In every tone abound!

2. With sound of thy sweet promises
Our longing hearts beat time;
Thy messages waft melody,
Like bells at evening chime! [Refrain]

3. Thy warnings sound, how solemnly,
Alarms deep toned and dark;
Like fog bells on the rocky coast
That guide the storm tossed bark! [Refrain]

4. Thy piloting how sure, how safe,
Until, all breakers passed,
We triumph o’er each hurricane,
And anchor, home at last! [Refrain]
