Precious Proclamation

"Marvelous are Thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well… How precious also are Thy thoughts unto me, O God!" (Psalm 139:14,17).  "The labor of the righteous tendeth to life… The lips of the righteous feed many" (Proverbs 10:16,21).  "Ye that make mention of the LORD, keep not silence… The LORD hath proclaimed unto the end of the world… thy salvation" (Isaiah 62:6,11).   "Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ… but as of God, in the sight of God, speak we in Christ" (2 Corinthians 2:14,17).   

The works of God are marvelous,
And that our soul knows very well!
How precious are His thoughts to us
Which He commissioned us to tell! 

Our labor and our lips proclaim
The Gospel of our precious Savior. 
There surely is no other name 
By which the Lord bestows His favor. 

The Lord commands us now to speak;
We would not therefore silent be
As souls are sent to us who seek
The Gospel truth that makes us free! 

O Lord, this precious proclamation
Expels the darkness with Your light.
As we declare Your great salvation,
We triumph only through Your might.
