Twenty-First Century Hymns
It is His Word, Godís
His voice, the voice that Adam heard
One word brings life, another death.
One word can call the light to shine
And one can change the water into wine
And one can summon
Lazarus from the tomb
Another dispatch a sinner to his doom.
One day this Word came into our dark earth
One day the Logos knew a babyís birth
One day the
incorporeal Word was flesh
To cleanse the air and make life fresh
One day the Word that God had spoken
Was crucified, yet no bone broken
For it was as the Word
Christ would die then rise up from dead
His Word is eternal, His Word is life
His Word a fire, a sword, a knife
His Word is Spirit,
that fills faithís lung
His life the lyric, that must be sung.
