A hymn by Francis Faber: Amid the eternal silences God’s endless Word was spoken; None heard but He who always spake And the silence was unbroken. For ever in the eternal land The glorious Day is dawning; For ever is the Father’s Light Like an endless outspread morning. From the Father’s vast tranquillity In light co-equal glowing The kingly consubstantial Word Is unutterably flowing. For ever climbs that Morning Star Without ascent or motion; For ever is its daybreak shed On the Spirit’s boundless ocean. Oh marvellous! Oh worshipful! No song or sound is heard, But everywhere and every hour, In love, in wisdom, and in power, The Father speaks His dear Eternal Word!
