Something to Sing and Shout About!

Gold breaks the brooding mold
No dark can bar the Light!
No threat of man can overthrow
God's mercy or His might 

Dark dread mingles with undying hope these days, doesn't it!
Remind us, oh, Lord
1 John 4:4
Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: 
because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

Arise, arise, arise
Seize hold of Mercy's prize
Nothing can sway
Hope's anchored Stay
Though oft the tempest tries

Again, again, again 
Ever since time began 
The wellspring of 
Eternal love 
Renews mercy to man 

From day to day to day 
It does not fade away 
But with each morn 
It is reborn 
To comfort mortal clay  

Beware, beware, beware 
Of doubt and pride's despair 
Lest the good fruit 
That would take root 
Is smothered by its tare 

Then pray and pray and pray 
Love’s perfect law obey 
Lest we forget 
The promised Yet 
That draws nearer each day 

Amen, amen, amen 
No mortal scheme can ban 
The wellspring of 
Eternal love 
That flows from God to man 

Then cheer and cheer and cheer
Stand guard with holy fear
As prophecy
Fulfills 'hear ye'
Redemption draweth near

Then shout and shout and shout
Something to sing about
Mercy renewed
Let gratitude
Extinguish seeds of doubt

Something to sing about forever and ever.
Truth is an anchor no tempest can sever!

To all (in Rome) who are loved by God and called to be his holy people:
Grace and peace to you from God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
Romans 1:7


Thank-you for stopping by my porch! I hope you were blessed!
