Publish His Perfection

"I will publish the name of the LORD: ascribe ye greatness unto our God.  He is the Rock; His work is perfect" (Deuteronomy 32:3,4).  "Open thy mouth for… the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction" (Proverbs 31:8).  "Jesus… saith unto him, Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee.  And he departed, and began to publish… how great things Jesus had done for him" (Mark 5:19). 

Come, let us publish Jesus' fame:   
His life, His death, His resurrection! 
Ascribe the greatness of His name
And manifest our Lord's perfection. 

We publish that He is our Rock
To all those looking for salvation. 
He's standing at each door to knock
Extending now His invitation.

We speak to kindred and to friends;
We speak to strangers now as well
To show the Savior who extends
Redemption saving us from hell. 

We publish, Lord, with grateful praise,
Such great perfections found in You!    
How marvelous are all Your ways
In Your compassion that we view!
