O Spirit, Now We Thank You

For the Word of God is living and powerfull . . . (Hebrews 4:12)

 

1.   O Spirit, now we thank You
         For giving us Your Word.
      Please bless its proclamation,
         The truths that we have heard.
      Indwell us and empow'r us,
         And cause us to obey;
      Shine now the light of Scripture
         On all we do and say.

2.   Great Artist of the Scriptures,
         In beauty You have made
      God's Word to shine in glory
         That cannot fail or fade.
      In poetry and proverbs,
         Through narrative and line;
      In prophecy and hist'ry,
         God's truth in splendor shines.

3.   You, down through many ages,
         Inspired men to write,
      Progressively revealing,
         You brought God's truth to light.
      O Spirit, come illumine
         This truth for us today;
      And guide us in sound doctrine,
         The straight and narrow way.

4.   Wield now Your Sword, O Spirit,
         The quick and living Word,
      And rend our hearts asunder
         With truths that we have heard.
      O search us now and know us,
         Expose iniquity;
      Conform us to our Savior,
         And holy we shall be.
