Liberty of our Lord

"Proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof" (Leviticus 25:10).  "God that performeth all things for me... shall send forth His mercy and his truth" (Psalm 57:2,3).  "That thy trust may be in the LORD, I have made known to thee this day... excellent things in counsels and knowledge... that thou mightest answer the words of truth" (Proverbs 22:19-21).   "Be ye also patient; establish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh" (James 5:8). 

As we proclaim Christ's liberty
According to our Lord's command,
We show the truth that makes us free
To all the people of the land. 

Our Lord performed what He foretold:
He came with grace and truth to us. 
Now with His Word we may be bold
Because He rose victorious! 

With counsels that are excellent,
We bring the truth of liberation
That offers captives who repent
The freedom our Lord's salvation. 

Lord, as we contemplate the cost
To liberate the souls of men, 
We'll join the saints who once were lost
To praise You when You come again!
