The most popular one of his hymns is “Blessed Jesus, at Thy Word.” This is a gathering hymn that helps believers to focus on the Lord; it helps Christian to move from the dark world to the presence of the Lord. Yes, Tobias heard Him, the perfect and incarnate Word of God, and then he received peace.
May the Lord grant you peace every time you open His blessed word.
1. Blessed Jesus, at your word
we are gathered all to hear you.
Let our hearts and souls be stirred
now to seek and love and fear you.
By your gospel pure and holy,
teach us, Lord, to love you solely.
2. All our knowledge, sense, and sight
lie in deepest darkness shrouded,
till your Spirit breaks our night
with your beams of truth unclouded.
You alone to God can win us;
you must work all good within us.
3. Glorious Lord, yourself impart;
Light of Light, from God proceeding,
open lips and ears and heart;
help us by your Spirit's leading.
Hear the cry your church now raises;
Lord, accept our prayers and praises.
In His service,
