Advent to Candlemas (Vol. 1)

O Light, O Word, O Flesh

1. O Light, O Word, O Flesh,
In Jesu's form combined,
Such loving happiness
And hope in Thee enshrined:
Thy light much too intense,
Thy Word hard to divine
But nothing so immense
As taking flesh like mine.

2. No darkness now too deep,
Nor thought too frightening,
No climb too hard nor steep,
No sky not brightening:
The sky above Thy Cross
Made Calvary dark as night
But thy mysterious flesh
Rose in eternal light.
