(Tune: I Heard The Voice Of Jesus Say #225 CMD)


Almighty God, my Strength and Shield,

       Omnipotent, my King!

       His power upholds my feeble frame

       And governs everything:

       Though I was born a sinner dead

       And wandered far away,

       He gave me life by sovereign power

       And took my guilt away.


Through my Redeemer's precious blood,

        I know the power of God;

        For by His blood and saving power,

        I am a child of God:

        When He appears the tempter flies

        And all my fears depart:

        He holds me in His mighty hand,

        And He secures my heart.


Lord, evermore exert Your power

       To guide me in Your way,

       Until I reach my home above

       At Your appointed day:

       There I will ever praise the Lamb

       For His redeeming blood

       With everlasting songs of grace,

                               Triumphant in my God!
