The Word of God is like a light
That shines se­rene­ly thro’ the night;
Its rays will light my wea­ry way
To the realms of a fair, un­end­ing day.


The Word of God is strong and sure,
Forevermore it shall en­dure,
When oceans cease to kiss the shore,
When suns shall set to rise no more;
’Mid crash of worlds it shall re­main
Unshaken midst the star­ry rain,
Upon its firm foun­da­tion strong,
I will plant my feet thro’ the ag­es long.

The Word of God is like a sword
That pierc­es hearts, thus saith the Lord;
And like a ham­mer, weigh­ty, strong,
That can break up the rocks of sin and wrong.


The Word of God is like the bread
On which the hosts of old were fed;
From Heav’n it came to fill our need,
Hungry hearts it will sa­tis­fy indeed.


The Word of God is like a fire,
It kin­dles in our hearts de­sire
To see its au­thor face to face
And to know all the full­ness of His grace.
