God of Words, God of Promise

God of words, God of promise, God on whom our souls rely

Faithful Lord, Great Forgiver, Word of Life that cannot lie.

Ages past You formed the mountains, placed the bound’ries on the sea,

Out of nothing, unimagined, through the Word they came to be.

Looking down with righteous pity, on my lost and bleeding soul,

Sent your Son, the Earth’s Creator—Word of Might to make me whole.

Holy Lord, who breathed the scriptures, perfect law in every verse

I ignored Your righteous warnings, turned Your blessings to a curse.

Praise the Savior, my Messiah, sinless Son without a flaw

On the cross He bore my sentence  Praise the Word who kept the law!

God without a broken promise, Lord whose words can never fall

All Your guarantees are certain, free salvation, grace for all.

By Your love I stand forgiven, love my sin cannot erase

Every promise yes in Jesus, Word of Faithfulness my grace.

All Your riches I inherit: holy wealth that never dies,

Body, soul redeemed, un-sinning, righteousness and life the prize.

Here on earth I feel my failure, body groaning, look above–

 Son of Man on clouds returning: Word of Truth and Steadfast Love

God of words, God of promise, God on whom our souls rely

Faithful Lord, Great Forgiver, Word of Life that cannot lie.
