Behold the blessings that we claim
When we have trusted in the Lord:
We find our refuge in His name,
And all our wealth is in Him stored.
So how much rather do we love
The name of Jesus Christ our Savior
Who blesses like the sun above
And shields us with loving favor!
Yes, rightly we desire more
Than all the wealth this world gives.
It's better far to keep the door
Where Christ has entered and He lives!
How rightly rather do we choose
To find in Christ our Hiding Place
Than all the world and to lose
Our souls in judgment and disgrace!
We've heard the voice from heaven call:
"Come out" of sin and come to Christ!
The Comforter reproves us all,
Since Christ for all was sacrificed.
The name of Christ is like a tower
That saves us from plagues of sin.
How rightly then we trust His power
And at His bidding we run in!
Lord, thank You for the wondrous plan
To thus escape our condemnation:
You died for all that every man
May rightly rather choose salvation!
