Hymn/Song Information

Now to the power of God supreme Be everlasting




Now to the power of God supreme
Be everlasting honours given;
He saves from hell, (we bless his name,)
He calls our wandering feet to heaven.


Not for our duties or deserts,
But of his own abounding grace,
He works salvation in our hearts,
And forms a people for his praise.


'Twas his own purpose that begun
To rescue rebels doomed to die;
He gave us grace in Christ his Son
Before he spread the starry sky.


Jesus the Lord appears at last,
And makes his Father's counsels known;
Declares the great transactions past,
And brings immortal blessings down.


He dies, and in that dreadful night
Did all the powers of hell destroy;
Rising, he brought our heaven to light,
And took possession of the joy.

Now to the power of God supreme
Be everlasting honours given;
He saves from hell, (we bless his name,)
He guides our wandering feet to heaven.


Not for our duties or deserts,
But of his own abundant grace,
He works salvation in our hearts,
And forms a people for his praise.


He dies, and in that dreadful night
Did all the powers of hell destroy;
He rose, and brought our heaven to light,
And took possession of the joy.
