"As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the LORD is round about His people from henceforth even forever" (Psalm 125:2). "My son, be wise, and make My heart glad… Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks" (Proverbs 27:11,23). "I have declared the former things from the beginning… and they came to pass… Thou hast heard, see all this; and will not ye declare it?" (Isaiah 48:3,6). "Stewards of the mysteries of God… it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful" (1 Corinthians 4:1,2).
The Lord is round about His own
From henceforth and forevermore.
We are accountable alone
To Christ our Lord, whom we adore.
There is in life no higher goal
Than living for our Savior's pleasure.
To Him we are accountable
As stewards of eternal treasure.
From the beginning, God declared
His prophecies that we have heard.
As stewards, let us be prepared
To show how He fulfilled His Word.
We know, Almighty God, our Savior,
That we're accountable for grace
To manifest Your saving favor
As we declare Your Gospel's case.
