Secret of Salvation

"Thou art the God of my salvation… The secret of the LORD is with them that fear Him; and He will show them His covenant" (Psalm 25:5,14).  "By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil" (Proverbs 16:6).  "Ah Lord GOD!… There is nothing too hard for Thee: Thou showest lovingkindness unto thousands… Great in counsel, and mighty in work" (Jeremiah 32:17-19).  "Faithful is He that calleth you, who also will do it" (1 Thessalonians 5:24). 

The God of our salvation shows
His Word to hearts with godly fear
With understanding He bestows
To seek the Lord while He is near. 

The Spirit of the Lord has urged
The lost to flee from coming wrath. 
By grace and truth our sins are purged;
His fear will purify our path. 

How great in counsel is the Lord
Who makes salvation's secret known! 
His life for sinners was outpoured;
No greater love was ever shown! 

O Lord, the secret of salvation
Has not been hidden from our view: 
We've heard Your faithful declaration,
And what You promised, You will do.
