Delivered from Death

"Hezekiah… trusted in the LORD... for he clave to the LORD" (2 Kings 18:1-6).  "From heaven did the LORD behold the earth… to loose those that are appointed to death" (Psalm 102:19,20).  "If thou forbear to deliver them that are drawn unto death… doth not He that pondereth the heart consider it?" (Proverbs 24:11,12).  "The Father… hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of His dear Son… having made peace through the blood of His cross" (Colossians 1:12,13,20). 

When Hezekiah's heart would fear,    
He clave to God with confidence.  
When deadly foes were drawing near,
He trusted in the Lord's defense. 

The Lord looks down from heaven's throne 
On those who seek His saving favor
To make His great salvation known
Through Christ who died to be our Savior. 

The Father has delivered us
From sin and death by His dear Son.
Our Savior rose victorious;
His work that saves our souls is done! 

Lord, on Your cross You did not cease
To fight for us with every breath.  
You shed Your blood to buy our peace
And so delivered us from death.
