How Great Thou Art
He was bruised and brought healing, He was pierced and eased pain, He was persecuted and brought freedom, He was dead and brought life, He is risen and brings power, He reigns and brings peace.
The world cannot understand Him, the armies cannot defeat Him, the schools cannot explain Him, and the leaders cannot ignore Him.
Herod could not kill Him, the Pharisees could not confuse Him, the people could not hold Him. Nero could not crush Him, Hitler could not silence Him, The New Age cannot replace Him, and Donahue cannot explain Him away.
He is light, love, longevity, and Lord. He is goodness, kindness, gentleness, and God! He is holy, righteous, mighty, powerful, and pure. His ways are right, His word is eternal!
His will is unchanging, and His mind is on me. He is my Redeemer, He is my Savior, He is my Guide, He is my peace. He is my joy, He is my comfort, He is my Lord, and He rules my life!
I serve Him because His bond is love, His burden is light, and His goal for me is abundant life. I follow Him because He is the Wisdom of the wise, and the Power of the powerful!
The ancient of days, the ruler of rulers. The leader of leaders, the overseer of the over comers, and the Sovereign Lord of all that was, and is and is to come. And if that seems impressive to you, try this for size,
His goal is a relationship with ME!
He will never leave me, never forsake me, never forget me, never overlook me, and never cancel my appointment in His appointment book!
When I fall, He lifts me up. When I fail, He forgives me. When I am weak, He is strong. When I am lost, He is the way!
When I am afraid, He is my courage. When I stumble, He steadies me. When I am hurt, He heals me. When I am broken, He mends me. When I am blind, He leads me!
When I am hungry, He feeds me. When I face trials, He is with me. When I face persecution, He shields me.
When I face problems, He comforts me.
When I face loss, He provides for me. When I face death, He carries me Home. He is everything for everybody, everywhere, every time, and every way!
He is God, He is faithful. I am His, and He is mine! My Father in Heaven can whip the father of this world.
So if you are wondering why I feel so secure, understand this...He said it and that settles it!
God is in control, I am on His side, and that means all is well with my soul!
Without Him, I am nothing, but with Him I can do all things. Philippians 4:13
