Hymn Lyrics Based on John 1:1-18

In the Beginning Was the Word

To the tune: CANONBURY (http://www.hymnary.org/hymn/PsH/528 or http://www.hymnary.org/hymn/UMH/463) Based on John 1:1-18. Words: Bill Weber, 2011.

v. 1
In the beginning was the Word,
eternal with His Father one;
through Him all things and this whole world
were made by Him the Father’s Son.

v. 2
In Him was life, the light of men,
into the darkened world He came.
All men He made, each one of them,
but they refused to trust His name.

v. 3
His name is Jesus, God’s dear Son,
eternal life He gives His own.
For grace in fullness He has won,
and for us made the Father known.

v. 4
All those who welcome Jesus Christ,
believing in God’s glorious Son,
are born of God and enter life,
and dwell with Jesus Christ above.

v. 5
We praise the Word who took our flesh,
in Him the Father’s glory see.
For grace and truth we see afresh,
His works and words we do believe.
