Day of Declaration

"I will extol Thee, my God, O King… Every day will I bless Thee; and I will praise Thy name forever and ever.  Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; and His greatness is unsearchable.  One generation shall praise Thy works to another, and shall declare Thy mighty acts" (Psalm 145:1-4).  "Boast not thyself of tomorrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth" (Proverbs 27:1).  "A little season, until… the great day of His wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?" (Revelation 6:11,17).    

We do not speak of mere tradition
To those who need to hear the facts
Of Christ, who saves us from perdition,
As we declare His mighty acts. 

The day is here, the time is short
To preach of Christ, the King of kings. 
Today we give the Lord's report;
We know not what tomorrow brings. 

It's right to preach with urgency
And evidence for faith and reason  
As we approach eternity,
For life is but a little season. 

O Lord, the day of declaration
Is now, when judgment is at hand.
We show the grace of Your salvation,
For by Your grace alone we stand.
