General (Vol. 3)

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.
