Sent To Tell for Such A Time

"For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time, then shall…  deliverance arise… from another place; but… who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?" (Esther 4:14).  "Thou hast… girded me with gladness, to the end that my glory may sing praise to Thee, and not be silent" (Psalm 30:11,12).  "Open thy mouth for the… cause of all such as are appointed to destruction" (Proverbs 31:8).  "Who then can be saved?... With God all things are possible" (Matthew 19:25,26). 

For such a time as this we run
To tell the lost there is a Savior!  
The work that saves our souls is done
By Christ who saves us by His favor! 

For such a time as this we sing
The praise of Christ who died for us,
Who rose to take away death's sting  
And ever lives victorious!

For such a time as this we tell
The lost to flee from sin's seduction
And come to Christ who saves from hell
The souls approaching their destruction. 

O Lord, for such a time as this,
As we are sent to tell good news,
We pray that souls may not dismiss
Your grace that only fools refuse.
