The Word to Pierce the Dark (John 1:1-16)

The Word to Pierce the Dark (John 1:1-16)

In the beginning was the Word, the source

Of cosmic order, with God vis-à-vis;

God was the Word, who was the motive force

Through whom all things were made and came to be.

In Him who faced the Father there was life

Which was for all mankind the light to shine

And pierce the darkness of our storm and strife;

Dark strives but has not grasped the light divine.

John witnessed to the coming very light,

Whose grace enlightens even faithless men

But only to believers gives the right

To be God’s children, born of God again.

The Word in flesh dwelt here and we perceived

His glory — from His fullness grace received
