James 1:16–18 (Listen)

16 Do not be deceived, my beloved brothers. 17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.1 18 Of his own will he brought us forth by the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.

Hymn: TLH 294, st. 1,3: O Word of God Incarnate

Hymnary.org Organ Audio


1. O Word of God Incarnate, 
O Wisdom from on high, 
O Truth unchanged, unchanging, 
O Light of our dark sky, 
We praise Thee for the radiance 
That from the hallowed page, 
A lantern to our footsteps 
Shines on from age to age. 

3. It floateth like a banner 
Before God’s host unfurled; 
It shineth like a beacon 
Above the darkling world. 
It is the chart and compass 
That o’er life’s surging sea, 
‘Mid mists and rocks and quicksands, 
Still guides, O Christ, to thee.
