Space to Speak

"Now for a little space, grace hath been showed from the LORD our God… that our God may lighten our eyes" (Ezra 9:8).  "The words of the LORD are pure words… Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, Thou shalt preserve them from this generation forever" (Psalm 12:6,7).  "The law of the wise is a fountain of life… A faithful ambassador is health" (Proverbs 13:14,17).  "JESUS… shall save His people from their sins… they shall call His name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us" (Matthew 1:21-23). 

The Lord gives us a little space
That He may now enlighten us
With words that shall convey His grace
With mercy that is marvelous! 

His words are pure, preserved by God,
To plainly speak of His salvation. 
Though some may scorn and some applaud,
God sends us to this generation. 

The fountain of God's precious Word
Imparts His everlasting health.
Let His ambassadors be stirred
To speak of His salvation's wealth! 

Lord Jesus Christ, Immanuel,
We thank You for the space to speak,
As You have sent us forth to tell
Of saving grace for those who seek.
