"We Praise the Word of God" hymn

This hymn text by David Gambrell, set to the familiar tune Leoni (“The God of Abraham Praise”), seeks to illustrate the various dimensions of the “Word of God” in the Reformed tradition: “Scripture – the Word written, preaching – the Word proclaimed, and the Sacraments – the Word enacted and sealed, bear testimony to Jesus Christ, the living Word.” (Directory for Worship, W-1.1004). Permission is granted for congregational use in worship or educational settings.

  2. This is an ideal hymn to use in the nursing home because of the familar melody. The content is wonderful for Thanksgiving too!
