Mzm 148; Dan 3:(57-88)
’Tis the grandest theme through the ages rung;’Tis the grandest theme for a mortal tongue;’Tis the grandest theme that the world e’er sung,“Our God is able to deliver thee.”
He is able to deliver thee,He is able to deliver thee;Though by sin oppressed, go to Him for rest;“Our God is able to deliver thee.”
’Tis the grandest theme in the earth or main;’Tis the grandest theme for a mortal strain;’Tis the grandest theme, tell the world again,“Our God is able to deliver thee.”
’Tis the grandest theme, let the tidings roll,To the guilty heart, to the sinful soul;Look to God in faith, He will make thee whole,“Our God is able to deliver thee.”
A sinner more wretched than I,There could not be;’Till Jesus the mighty, came nigh,To set me free,I opened my heart to His call,His own to be,And when I surrendered all,My Lord saved me.
He’s able and willing to save,Able, willing,He’s able and willing to save,For He saved me.
His power no limit can know,His grace is mine;His love He is willing to show,’Tis love divine;His mercy is offered today,So full, so free,He’ll never turn you away,For He saved me.
He’s able and willing to goO’er mountains steep,Or down in the valley so low,Or stormy deep:If willing His bidding to do,His own you’ll be,I know He can keep you true,For He keeps me.
With the window open wide,And the foe so near,Daniel bows before his God,Without doubt or fear.
Brave Daniel! brave Daniel!Ever good and true;If, like him, to God we’re faithful,He’ll bring us safely through.
Hark! the voice of prayer and praise,Full of joy and peace;King’s decree and lion’s denCannot make it cease!
In the lion’s den, behold,Daniel sweetly sleeps;While the guardian angel there,Holy vigil keeps.
God is watching o’er His own,With all-seeing eye;Vainly foes against them rage;They but rage—and die.
Do you see the Hebrew captive kneeling,At morning, noon and night, to pray?In his chamber he remembers Zion,Though in exile far away.
Are your windows open toward Jerusalem,Though as captives here, a “little while” we stay?For the coming of the King in His gloryAre you watching day by day?
Do not fear to tread the fiery furnace,Nor shrink the lion’s den to share;For the God of Daniel will deliver,He will send His angel there.
Children of the living God, take courage,Your great deliverance sweetly sing.Set your faces toward the hill of Zion,Thence to hail your coming King.
