Vows and Vistas

"The children of Israel did according to all that the LORD commanded… so they set forward" (Numbers 2:34).  "Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I… that I may daily perform my vows" (Psalm 61:2,8).  "Live… to [do] the will of God… As good stewards of the manifold grace of God… that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion forever and ever. Amen" (1 Peter 4:2,10,11). 

The Lord delivered Israel
And brought them forth by His command
With vows and vistas they knew well
To lead them to their promised land. 

The Lord gives vistas in our walk
By meditation in His Word
That leads us to the higher rock
To see His vows that are assured. 

The vows of God are evidence
That we shall never be forsaken. 
The vows of our obedience
To God should not be lightly taken. 

Your vows and vistas, Lord, You give,
Which mark the path of Your salvation,
Remind us that You ever live
To save our souls from condemnation!
