O Word of God

JOHN 1:1-5, 14
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through him, and without him not one thing came into being. What has come into being in him was life, and the life was the light of all people. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it. 
And the Word became flesh and lived among us, and we have seen his glory, the glory as of a father’s only son, full of grace and truth. 

Light of the World,
your pierce the darkness
shattering gloom and doubt and despair.
It's a fact of science:
no matter how dark the darkness is
even the smallest light breaks the darkness.

Word of all Words,
you are the Word
made fresh and flesh among us.
God's living Word
speaking good news to all!
O Word of Grace
O Word of Comfort
O Word of Challenge
O Word of Peace
O Word of Hope
O Word of Life
O Eternal Word,
speak again into our world.
Speak through us to
the hopeless,
the grieving,
the dying,
the hungry,
the hurting,
the poor,
the lame,
the prisoner,
the rich,
the lonely,
the blessed,
the oppressed,
the widow,
the mother,
the father,
the child,
the powerful,
the ruler,
the lowly,
the servant,
the earth,
the cosmos,
the world!

Speak again, O Word,
for in you we find
and truth,
and life!
