Blest Boast

"In God we boast all the day long, and praise Thy name forever" (Psalm 44:8).  "For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given: and the government shall be upon His shoulder: and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace" (Isaiah 9:6).  "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved" (Romans 10:13). 

In God we boast throughout the day,
And we will praise His name forever. 
He died to wash our sins away;
He lives, and He will leave us never. 

How rightly do we celebrate
Our Savior as the Child born,
God's Son who thus would demonstrate
His love for sinners, though they scorn. 

His name is surely Wonderful,
Our Counselor, The Mighty God,
Eternal Father of our soul,
The Prince of Peace with heaven's rod. 

How blest we are to now proclaim
And boast in Him whom we adore,
For all who call upon His name
By grace are saved forevermore! 

Lord, as we contemplate Your grace
And boast in Your unending love,
You bless us as we seek Your face
And fix our eyes on things above. 

O Lord, we love to boast in You,
Our Refuge and Eternal Rest,
For thus we find the more we do,
The more our hearts by You are blest!
