Another discovery in Hymns of Grace:
Our Sovereign God
Our Sov’reign God by His own word sustains this world and reigns as Lord.
No angel demon, sinful man can change His course, restrain His hand.
O Sov’reign God, we praise Your pow’r; Your wisdom, goodness we adore!
We bow our hearts before Your throne; help us, O Lord, to trust You more! Help us, O Lord, to trust You more!
When the fullness of the time had come, God sent His own beloved Son
To keep God’s law, live in our place, to bear our sin, guilt and disgrace.
Dead in our sin, estranged from God, we fled as rebels from His love.
In sov’reign grace He made us sons and saved us from the wrath to come, and saved us from the wrath to come.
Before our birth He planned our days, laid out our course, ordained our ways.
The moments of our lives He weaves so all the glory He receives.
To Those He loved before all time, to all He called, in grace renewed, He cannot lie; His Word is true—He makes all things to work for good! He makes all things to work for good!
He has written hist’ry’s final page; His Son’s return will end this age.
The Lamb will come in glorious might, take back His world and end its night.
How deep the wisdom of our God, unknown, unfathomed are His ways!
None counsels Him or knows His mind. We bow before Him all our days, we bow before Him all our days.
