You’re the Word of God the Father
from before the world began;
Ev’ry star and ev’ry planet
has been fashioned by Your hand.
All creation holds together
by the power of Your voice.
Let the skies declare Your glory;
let the land and seas rejoice.
You’re the Author of creation,
You’re the Lord of ev’ry man,
and Your cry of love rings out
across the lands.
Yet you left the gaze of angels,
came to seek and save the lost
and exchanged the joy of heaven
for the anguish of a cross.
With a pray’r You fed the hungry,
with a word You calmed the sea;
Yet how silently You suffered,
that the guilty may go free.
With a shout You rose victorious,
wresting vict’ry from the grave
and ascended into heaven,
leading captives in Your way.
Now You stand before the Father,
interceding for Your own;
From each tribe and tongue and nation
You are leading sinners home.
