God of our strength, enthroned above,The source of life, the fount of love;O let devotion’s sacred flameOur souls awake to praise Thy Name.
God of our strength, we wait on Thee,Our sure defense forever be.
To Thee we lift our joyful eyes,To Thee on wings of faith we rise;Come Thou, and let Thy courts on earthRing out Thy praise in holy mirth.
God of our strength, from day to dayDirect our thoughts and guide our way;O may our hearts united beIn sweet communion, Lord, with Thee.
God of our strength, on Thee we call;God of our hope, our light, our all,Thy Name we praise, Thy love adore,Our Rock, our Shield, forevermore.
The wondrous work the Lord has doneLet every voice proclaim!And for the work of grace begun,The wondrous battle fought and won,Give glory to His Name!
We pleaded for the Spirit,He came in mighty power;We pleaded for the droppings,And lo, He sent the shower!
Unto the Lord doth praise belong,O tell it everywhere!Let every ransomed soul prolongThe loud hosannah of the song—The Lord doth answer prayer!
We’ll sing the power of Jesus’ Name,And His atoning blood;Today and evermore the same,The vilest sinner to reclaim,And bring Him back to God.
Let every heart and every tongueAs one united hostPraise God for what His arm hath done—Praise God the Father, God the Son,And God the Holy Ghost!
The sweetest story told on earth,Or heard in Heav’n above,Is told of Jesus and His birth,Of Jesus and His love.
O story never old,The sweetest ever told!Until the gates of gold swing back for me;I’ll tell it o’er and o’er,And then on yonder shoreIt still forevermore my song shall be.
He took upon Himself the guiltOf all my sins and thine,And on the cross of CalvaryHe paid thy debt and mine.
“There was no other good enoughTo pay the price of sin;He only could unlock the gateOf Heav’n and let us in.”
“O dearly, dearly hath He lovedAnd we must love Him, too,And trust in His redeeming love,And try His works to do.”
