Blest Boast

"Seek unto God… and make thy supplication to the Almighty" (Job 8:5).  "In God we boast all the day long, and praise Thy name forever" (Psalm 44:8).  "A true witness delivereth souls: but a deceitful witness speaketh lies.  In the fear of the LORD is strong confidence: and His children shall have a place of refuge" (Proverbs 14:25,26).  "Jesus… saith unto him, Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee" (Mark 5:19). 

Our God provides for our salvation,
And in His promise we confide,
For we have made our supplication
To Christ, who has for sinners died. 

We boast in Christ, our God and Savior,
Who paid redemption's awful price
To bless us with salvation's favor
Procured by His self-sacrifice. 

As witnesses of Christ we rise
To boast in Him with confidence,
For God has heard the humble cries
Of those who trust in His defense. 

As on that Galilean coast
Where demons ceased to have control,
Lord, we are blest to make our boast
In You, the Savior our soul!
