“God’s Word is our great heritage,
and shall be our forever.
To spread its light from age to age,
Shall be our chief endeavor.
Through life it guides our way,
In death it is our stay.
Lord, grant while worlds endure,
we keep its teaching pure
throughout all generations.”

God’s Word is Our Great Heritage, Nicolai F.S. Grundtvig

“The soul can live without all things except the Word of God; without the Word of God nothing can help us. But when we have the Word we need nothing else, for in the Word we have enough food, joy, peace, light, art, justice, truth, wisdom, and all good things in abundance.

What then is this Word that bestows such high grace, and how shall I use it? It is nothing other than the actual preaching of Christ as it is contained in the gospel. The purpose of the preaching is that you should hear your God speaking to you, telling how all your life and works are nothing before God and how you and all that is in you would perish eternally. If you truly believe how sinful you are, you will despair of yourself entirely. But in order that you man be saved from yourself and out of yourself-that is, out of ruin-God presents to you his dearly beloved Son, Jesus, and bids you, through his living and comforting Word, to yield yourself to him with a cheerful heart. For the sake of such faith all your sins will be forgiven, your ruin overcome, and you will be just and true, content and devout, fulfilling all his commandments, and set free from all things.” Martin Luther
