So Sweet a Word

So sweet a word
To those who heard
Such truth beheld
And strength compelled

The glorious word
To hearts unstirred
Will root and grow
Or be cast below

This precious word
Is oft referred
And very misquoted
But seldom heard 

The beautiful word
By which we know
Of love so great
And our defeated foe 

That piercing word
Can marrows divide
And relationships mend
It conquers pride 

The blessed word
Of joyous bliss
Gives strength today
And promises this: 

The word of God
To those who refuse
Will still prove right
When sinners lose
