"Now it is in mine heart to make a covenant with the LORD God… And Hezekiah rejoiced… for the thing was done suddenly" (2 Chronicles 29:10,36). "Happy is he… whose hope is in the LORD his God… which keepeth truth forever" (Psalm 146:5,6). "Whoso confesseth and forsaketh them [sins] shall have mercy. Happy is the man that feareth [the Lord] always" (Proverbs 28:13,14). "These are they which… have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb" (Revelation 7:14).
The Lord has heard those who prepare
To seek Him with a godly fear,
Approaching Him with humble prayer
And with a heart that is sincere.
The joy in Hezekiah's heart
Is shared by all who have been saved.
The fear of God is how we start
To find salvation that we craved.
The Lord who keeps His Word forever,
Who by His truth has made us free,
Has saved us, not by our endeavor,
But by His grace eternally.
O Lord, You heard me when I cried,
And suddenly You saved my soul!
But for Your grace, I would have died;
Your precious blood has made me whole.
