The Creator of all we marvel at is our Divine Intervener/Interceder! Hallelujah!
And bind my mind and spirit in chains where doubt and fear rue
And leave me floundering in bogs of misery, guilt-wrought
But for the lifeline of God’s promises, faithful and true (Heb.10:23)
From age to age His Word abides to cheer and edify (1 Pet.1:25)
To whisper to the storm-tossed bark, ‘Fear not, for it is I’ (John 6:20,Matt.14:27)
His manna for my wilderness, ( Deut.8:3) His grace to save my soul (Eph.2:8)
His ear to hear my prayer, (1 Pet.3:12) his righteousness to call my own (2 Cor.5:21)
‘When I am weak, then am I strong’ (2 Cor.12:10) ‘thy faith hath made thee whole’ (Matt.9:22)
Living Water to quench my thirst, ( John 4:14) His life-blood to atone (Eph.1:7)
Heavens declare His glory,(Ps.19:1) and His glory fills the earth (Isa.6:3)
His plan for man’s salvation, (Matt.1:21) for repentance (Mark 1:15) and rebirth (John3:3)
Wrought through His sacred suffering, (John 3:16) yielding hope unashamed (Rom5.5)
His prophecy, to conquer death and hell; His victory
Has overthrown the grave because He braved His Father’s will (Luke 22:42)
His peace past understanding, (Phil.4:7) and His Mystery revealed (Col.1:26)
His all-sufficient grace (2Cor.12:9) to help us to trust and obey (Prov.3:5-6)
His Mighty Hand pierced through with nails; by His wounds we are healed (Isa.53:5)
But, God is rich in mercy (Eph.2:4) and He helps us do our part (Heb.13:6)
