O Blessed Word

Verse 1:
Eternal life God’s Word proclaims
To lost and dying men;
By it alone we know the Lord,
Unseen by mortal ken.

O blessed Word,
O gracious Word,
We love it more and more;
O may it be our Strength and Sword,
Till earthly strife is o’er.

Verse 2:
God’s grace is in His Holy Word;
We need it ev’ry day;
In all our conflicts this the sword
Our ev’ry foe to slay.

Verse 3:
By this same Word we know our work,
And how it should be done;
How we should live, and how thro’ grace
The promised crown is won.

L.W. Munhall/Ira D. Sankey
