The First and Final Word

God’s Word, righteous and glorious
Perfect, eternal, true
 It makes His love alive in us
Like nothing else will do

It equips, completes, trains, sustains
Corrects and edifies
Though all else fails, still IT remains
To make the simple wise

It does not cater to the flesh
But on its sacred page
Reveals God's perfect Righteousness
Unchanged from age to age

The judgment of ten thousand men
That knowledge may applaud
Is like the noise of small children
Without the Word of God

God’s grace will always be enough
To break the curse of sin
But only through His word in us
Can His power begin

A branch, when severed from the vine
Is a dead, fruitless thing
His Word is the faithful lifeline
To which the branches cling

God’s love is ever undeterred
A pure and perfect rod
In the Beginning was The Word
The Word Was and IS God

1 Thessalonians 2:13
And we continually thank God that in receiving the word of God from us,
 you did not accept it as the word of men, but as the true word of God--
the word now at work in you who believe.

 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Romans 10:17

Every Scripture is God-breathed and profitable for instruction, for conviction,
 for correction, and for training in righteousness,
 so that the man of God may be complete, fully equipped for every good work.…
2 Tim.3:16-17
