Winning Words

"O clap your hands, all ye people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph... For God is the King of all the earth: sing ye praises with understanding" (Psalm 47:1,7).  "To the counselors of peace is joy... Heaviness in the heart of man maketh it stoop: but a good word maketh it glad" (Proverbs 12:20,25).  "I will put My laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts... For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more" (Hebrews 8:10-12). 

O clap your hands and shout with praise,  
For God is reigning on His throne. 
With understanding of His ways,  
We sing and make His triumph known.

The counselors of peace have joy
That cause the heavy heart to sing. 
The enemy cannot destroy
The good Word of our God and King. 

The Lord has put His words inside
The mind and hearts of those He wins,
And thereby He has testified  
That He shall not recall their sins. 

O Lord, the winning words You gave
That You have written on our heart
Still liberate the souls You save
With grace that You alone impart.
