In The Beginning Was The Word - Anthem for Mixed Chorus a cappella by J. Lee Graham published on 2014-02-15T05:30:28Z Composed February 10-13, 2014. Text: John 1: 1-5, 14 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made. In Him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
