Arm of the Almighty

"Hast thou an arm like God?...  Then will I also confess unto thee that thine own right hand can save thee" (Job 40:9,14).  "To whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?... He hath poured out His soul unto death: and He was numbered with the transgressors; and He bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors" (Isaiah 53:1,12).  "I say unto you, that this that is written must yet be accomplished in Me, and He was reckoned among the transgressors: for the things concerning Me have an end" (Luke 22:37). 

Consider the Almighty's arm
That He extends to rescue us
And shelter us from every harm,
Eternally victorious! 

His arm in Scripture was revealed,  
Declaring that He would be slain,
So helpless sinners might be healed
And cleansed from their transgression's stain. 

This prophecy which had been written
Within Isaiah fifty-three
Would be fulfilled when Christ was smitten
And bruised for our iniquity. 

O Lord Almighty, gracious Savior,
There is no other arm we find
Than Yours extending heaven's favor,
So strong, heroic, and so kind!
