Thanks to God whose word was spoken


Thanks to God whose Word was spoken
in the deed that made the earth.
His the voice that called a nation;
his the fires that tried her worth.
God has spoken, God has spoken:
praise God for his open word.

Thanks to God whose Word incarnate
heights and depths of life did share.
Deeds and words and death and rising,
grace in human form declare.
God has spoken, God has spoken:
praise God for his open word.

Thanks to God whose word was written
in the Bible's sacred page,
record of the revelation
showing God to every age.
God has spoken, God has spoken:
praise God for his open word.

Thanks to God whose word is published
in the tongues of every race.
See its glory undiminished
by the change of time and place.
God has spoken, God has spoken:
praise God for his open word.

Thanks to God whose Word is answered
by the Spirit's voice within.
Here we drink of joy unmeasured,
life redeemed from death and sin.
God is speaking, God is speaking:
praise God for his open word.
