Omnipotent Lord My Saviour and King




Omnipotent Lord,
My Saviour and King,
Thy succour afford,
Thy righteousness bring;
Thy promises bind thee
Compassion to have,
Now, now let me find thee
Almighty to save.


Rejoicing, in hope,
And patient in grief,
To thee I look up For certain relief;
I fear no denial, No danger I fear,
Nor start from the trial,
While Jesus is near.


I every hour In jeopardy stand;
But thou art my power,
And holdest my hand;
While yet I am calling,
Thy succour I feel,
It saves me from falling,
Or plucks me from hell.


O who can explain
This struggle for life!
This travail and pain,
This trembling and strife!
Plague, earthquake, and famine,
And tumult, and war,
The wonderful coming
Of Jesus declare.


For every fight Is
dreadful and loud,
The warrior's delight
Is slaughter and blood,
His foes overturning,
Till all shall expire;
But this is with burning
And fuel of fire.


Yet God is above
Men, devils, and sin,
My Jesus's love
The battle shall win,
So terribly glorious
His coming shall be,
His love all victorious
Shall conquer for me


He all shall break through;
His truth and his grace
Shall bring me into
The plentiful place,
Through much tribulation,
Through water and fire,
Through floods of temptation,
And flames of desire.


On Jesus, my power,
Till then I rely,
All evil before
His presence shall fly;
When I have my Saviour,
My Sin shall depart
And Jesus for ever
Shall reign in my heart.
