Answer of the Almighty

"Oh that one would hear me!  Behold, my desire is, that the Almighty would answer me" (Job 31:35).  "God be merciful unto us, and bless us; and cause His face to shine upon us… that Thy way may be known upon earth, Thy saving health among all nations" (Psalm 67:1,2).  "Forsake the foolish, and live; and go in the way of understanding… The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the Holy is understanding" (Proverbs 9:6,10).  "Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish" (Luke 13:3,5). 

The Lord Almighty answers those
Who humbly seek to find His grace. 
The counsel that He will disclose
Is heard when sinners seek His face. 

The answer of Almighty God
Is in the Gospel's declaration. 
Though we deserve His judgment rod,
He will impart His great salvation. 

Today the Lord is still commanding
That all men everywhere repent. 
This is the way of understanding
That shows God's merciful intent. 

O Lord Almighty, we have heard
Your answer that amazes us! 
The saving health You have procured
To ransom souls is marvelous!
