How Good is His Gospel!

"He [Isaac] blessed him [Jacob]...  yea, and he shall be blessed" (Genesis 27:23,33).  "I have gone astray like a lost sheep; seek Thy servant" (Psalm 119:176).  "As cold waters to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country" (Proverbs 25:25).  "Now to Him that is of power to establish you according to my gospel... which was kept secret since the world began, but now is made manifest...  be glory through Jesus Christ forever. Amen" (Romans 16:25-27).   

Can God bless Jacob, a deceiver?
Can God bless sheep, all gone astray? 
How good the news is to the believer: 
The love of God has found a way! 

As waters to a thirsty soul
We hear the good news from afar:  
Our ransom has been paid in full
By Christ, in spite of who we are!  

Our Savior came to Bethlehem
For sinners, as He said He would,
Then lived, and died, and rose for them;
Is not His Gospel to us good? 

O Christ, our gracious God and Savior,
Your goodness now is manifest: 
How full Your Gospel is with favor
Whereby the sinner may be blest!
