Your Husband is the Lord — Don Fortner

(Tune: #52 — Majestic Sweetness — CM


1.    Let sinners saved by Christ rejoice,

And take Him at his word;

He says, O, listen to his voice, —

“Your Husband is the Lord.”


2.    Your Maker and your Husband, too!

Omnipotence and love

Have stooped to take such worms as you

Up to His throne above!


3.    Though poor and helpless, base and vile,

Your Husband loves you still;

Ravished His heart! Behold His smile!

With you He’s pleased to dwell!


4.    Though sins enormous debt you see,

And taste its bitter gall,

Your marriage union sets you free, —

Your Husband paid for all!


5.    Soon He will come to take you home,

The Marriage Supper give;

And you’ll no more from Jesus roam,

But with your Husband live!
