Boast in our Beloved

"In God we boast all the day long, and praise Thy name forever" (Psalm 44:8).  "The LORD hath brought forth our righteousness: come, and let us declare in Zion the work of the LORD our God" (Jeremiah 51:10).  "We see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honor; that He by the grace of God should taste death for every man.  For it became Him… in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the Captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings" (Hebrews 2:9,10). 

We boast in Jesus all day long
And praise His name forevermore. 
We glorify Him with our song,
Exalting Him whom we adore. 

We had no goodness of our own,
But Christ gave us His righteousness. 
Come, let us make our Savior known,
Who rescued us from our distress! 

We boast in our beloved Lord
Who tasted death for every man. 
This One, whom many have ignored,
Extends God's ONLY saving plan. 

Beloved Lord, we boast in You,
The Captain of our soul's salvation,
As all Your beauty is in view
And we draw near in adoration.
