There’s pow’r, mighty pow’r in the word of the King;He speaks, and the captive is free;The lips of the dumb with rejoicing shall sing;O speak, blessèd Savior, to me!
O the pow’r, mighty pow’r,In the word of my Savior and King!O the pow’r, mighty pow’r!For Jesus salvation shall bring.
There’s pow’r, mighty pow’r in the pardoning word;He said, “Go, and sin now no more!”How sweet was the hour when forgiveness I heard,And mercy had opened the door!
There’s pow’r, mighty pow’r in the word of the Lord,And strength He will give, when we pray,To follow His footsteps, His goodness record,And walk in love’s beautiful way.
We know Thee Who Thou art,Lord Jesus, Mary’s Son;We know the yearnings of Thy heartTo end Thy work begun.
That sacred Fount of grace,’Mid all the bliss of Heaven,Has joy whene’er we seek Thy face,And kneel to be forgiven.
Brought home from ways perverse,At peace Thine arms within,We pray Thee, shield us from the curseOf falling back to sin.
We dare not ask to liveHenceforth from trials free;But oh! when next they tempt us, giveMore strength to cling to Thee.
We know Thee Who Thou art,Our own redeeming Lord;Be Thou by will, and mind, and heart,Accepted, loved, adored.
