Celebrate the Certainty!

"Have not I written to thee excellent things… that I might make thee know the certainty of the words of truth; that thou mightest answer the words of truth to them that send unto thee?" (Proverbs 22:19-21).  "Jesus answered… Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up… But He spake of the temple of His body. When therefore He was risen from the dead, His disciples remembered that He had said this unto them; and they believed the Scripture, and the Word which Jesus had said" (John 2:19-22). 

The excellence is plain to see
In God's prophetic written Word. 
Come, celebrate the certainty
Of words of truth that we have heard! 

We trust the Scriptures' excellence,
For God fulfills them in their season,
Equipping us with evidence
To answer those who ask a reason. 

The answer that our Savior gave,
Which prophesied His resurrection,  
Upon the third day at His grave
Was open for a clear inspection.

O Lord, we rightly celebrate
The certainty of what is true;  
The evidence we have is great
That undergirds our faith in You!
