Logos (Prayer for a Friend)

you spoke the earth and sky in place
you spoke in place the creatures too
you spoke the fiery stars in space
you speak and you make all things new

you whisper and the mountains shake
just speak and ev’ry knee will bow
a shout from you: the earth would break
one word is all I’m asking now

at a word from you the lame can walk
at a word from you the sightless see
at a word from you the mute can talk
at a word from you the demons flee

oh Lord why don’t you hear my plea
oh Lord would you speak a word for me?

Note: Logos is the Greek word for “Word”.  In the New Testament book of John, the “Word of God” was made flesh in Jesus Christ, and thus Jesus is Logos personified.

  1. Brings to mind reading and discussing psalms 29 and 30 today:
    29: 3 The voice of Jehovah is upon the waters: the God of glory thundereth,—Jehovah upon great waters.
    30: 8 I called to thee, Jehovah, and unto the Lord did I make supplication
    How much God loves to hear our pleas.
