El-Shaddai, God almighty is,

None can resist His will:

None can restrain His sovereign work,

Or say to Him, "Be still."


El-Shaddai, God redeemed us by

His Son's effectual blood:

There's saving power in that blood-

We're reconciled to God!


El-Shaddai, God has called us by

Has mighty, sovereign grace:

His Spirit raised us from the dead,

And keeps us now by grace.


El-Shaddai, God in whom we trust,

Almighty, sovereign Lord,

You are our Shield and our Defense,

Our great, Almighty God!
