Merciful Mouth

"Be strong and courageous… with us is the LORD our God to help us… And the people rested themselves upon the words of Hezekiah" (2 Chronicles 32:7,8 ).  "The LORD taketh pleasure in His people: He will beautify the meek with salvation… Let the high praises of God be in their mouth" (Psalm 149:4,6).  "Open thy mouth for the dumb in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction" (Proverbs 31:8).  "Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues" (Revelation 10:11). 

The people rested as they heard
The counsel Hezekiah gave
To trust the promise in God's Word
That He is with those He will save. 

We bring the joyful declaration
That Christ descended from His throne
To beautify us with salvation
And make His tender mercies known. 

Declare it to the north and south! 
Proclaim it to the east and west! 
Let joyful praises fill our mouth
To Christ by whom we have been blessed! 

As prophets came to prophesy
To show Your ways so merciful,
Lord, may our mouth now testify
That You alone can save the soul.
