the Christ of all the scriptures, the true and living Word., 508

The Lord Almighty gave the Word that came to us in flesh to dwell, 504

The peace which God alone reveals and by his word of grace imparts, 33

the Word he gave broke through the grave, and vanquished sin and hell., 504

the word of God to give me speech, his heavenly host to be my guard., 237

The word of God, which ne'er shall cease, proclaims free pardon, grace and peace, 161

This holy Word exposes sin, convinces us that we're unclean, 509

Thus on earth the Word appears, gracing his created spheres, 265

We praise the Word made flesh; true God, true man is he, 185

We praise you, Father, God and Lord; we praise you Christ, the living Word, 100

by words and signs and actions thus still seeking not himself but us., 485

for the words which you have spoken, now we give you thanks, O Lord., 190, 229

He leadeth me: O blessed thought! O words with heav'nly comfort fraught!, 787

in all our thoughts, our words and ways, thus may our lives show forth thy praise, 204

in Christ's strength we have our fitness, work to do and words to say., 627

Jesus taught both by example and with words of lasting worth, 665

Keep me from saying words that later need recalling, 615

Lord, you bless with words assuring: "I am with you to the end.", 71, 617

More than words, yes, more than words, I know you want from me., 601

On Christ leaning, find life's meaning, work to do and words to say., 627

taking his own task upon us, all his sacred words obey., 635

that all our thoughts and words and deeds may glorify your name., 666

then to my words give grace, lest I offend the weak., 615

to overcome my foes with words and actions kind, 615

We walk by faith and not by sight; no gracious words we hear, 713

What love through all his actions ran! What wondrous words of love he spoke!, 355

when our lips can speak no words other than true, 689

which the folk of countless cultures in new words and rhythms raise., 684

who by faithful words and actions lead young lives to God above!, 665
