From the January 1901 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Word of God, whose wondrous entrance
Giveth light to men,
Gleaming brightly through the darkness,
Shine on us again;
We have seen the shadows vanish
As thy dawn grew bright;
Shine upon us in thy glory,
Banish all our night!

Word of God, in the beginning,
Ere the breaking dawn,
Thy true Light, forever changeless,
Still was shining on;
Through uncomprehending darkness,
Now, as then, it gleams,
And we follow, ever pressing
Nearer to its beams.

Word of God, made flesh among us,
Full of truth and grace,
Still, as then, thy radiant glory
Lighteth every place.
We would know thee, humbly choosing
But the Father's will,
Sure thy Light, along our pathway,
Shineth on us still.
