Glory to God

"In God we boast all the day long, and praise Thy name forever" (Psalm 44:8).  "Boast not thyself of tomorrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth... A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself; but the simple pass on, and are punished" (Proverbs 27:1,12).  "Giving glory to God… we believe on Him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead, who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification" (Romans 4:20,24,25). 

We boast in our God all day long,
And not in our feeble endeavor. 
Let this be our unending song:   
To God be the glory forever!

We boast not ourselves of tomorrow,
But glory in what God has planned,
Who gives us each breath that we borrow,
And holds all our times in His hand. 

How graciously God will provide
The safety of His Hiding Place
In Christ, who for sinners has died  
To ransom our souls by His grace! 

To You be all glory, O God,
Who authored our justification! 
We worship with all who applaud
And praise You for so great salvation.
