“When the storms are o’er us And dark clouds before us, Then its light directeth and our way protecteth. Who can tell the pleasure, Who can count the treasure, By the word imparted to the simple-hearted?” This is a hymn of the power of God’s word and how it protects us.

Lyrics

The Word
(Henry Williams Baker)
Music by James Collignon

Lord, thy word abideth
And our footsteps guideth;
Who its truth believeth
Light and joy receiveth.

When our foes are near us,
Then thy word doth cheer us,
Word of consolation,
Message of salvation.

When the storms are o’er us
And dark clouds before us,
Then its light directeth
And our way protecteth

Who can tell the pleasure,
Who can count the treasure,
By the word imparted
To the simple hearted?

Word of mercy giving
Succor to the living;
Word of life supplying
Comfort to the dying

O that we discerning
Its most holy learning,
Lord, may love and hear thee,
Evermore be near thee!
