KJV Text:

(Alt. audio): Chapter: 119

     97 MEM. O how love I thy law! it is my meditation all the day.

     98 Thou through thy commandments hast made me wiser than mine enemies: for they are ever with me. 99 I have more understanding than all my teachers: for thy testimonies are my meditation. 100 I understand more than the ancients, because I keep thy precepts.

     101 I have refrained my feet from every evil way, that I might keep thy word.

     102 I have not departed from thy judgments: for thou hast taught me.

     103 How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth! 104 Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.(KJV)


Hymn: TLH 294:
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. 

2. The Church from her dear Master 
Received the gift divine, 
And still that light she lifteth 
O’er all the earth to shine. 
It is the golden casket 
Where gems of truth are stored; 
It is the heaven-drawn picture 
Of Christ, the living Word. 

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. 

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. 

4. O make thy church, dear Saviour, 
A lamp of purest gold, 
To bear before the nations 
Thy true light, as of old. 
O teach thy wand’ring pilgrims 
By this their path to trace, 
Till, clouds and darkness ended, 
They see thee face to face.
