From sight to faith.



When I was down in the midst of sin,

Trapped by iniquities I reveled in,

I trusted the lies of the world,

Never looked at my wretched heart within.


But it pleased you to reveal your salvation,

And to declare the battle is won,

When you showed your grace, by faith alone

In your beloved and only Son.



*


The glory of the Lord of the heavenly hosts.



Great and faithful are you, the Lord, the Lord God,

Who sits enthroned—angels sing of your glory—

Whose very Word sustains creation throughout heaven and earth,

He whose promises are of sovereign and eternal worth.

Who commands the armies of heaven—in you they make their boast—

Praise be to the God of gods, the King of kings, the Lord of the heavenly hosts!

Praises be to the Lord, who knows the proud from afar,

But hears the cry of the lowly and the humble wherever they are,

Who so loved the world that He sent his Son,

He has the victory, the battle is won!

Great and faithful are you, the Lord, my God,

Whose presence goes from the highest heavens,

To the depths of the vaults of the sea,

Whose very rule reigns sovereign,

Over every authority.

Who conquered the kingdom of darkness and shatters the powers of hell,

Praises be to the Prince of peace, the King, Emmanuel!

Praises be to the Lord, who knows the proud from afar,

But hears the cry of the lowly and the humble wherever they are,

Who so loved the world that He sent his Son,

He has the victory, the battle is won!


Though I tread upon the earth in health or painful strife,

Let my lips boast of your praise and the gift of eternal life.

Praises be to the Lord, who knows the proud from afar,

But hears the cry of the lowly and the humble wherever they are,

Who so loved the world that He sent his Son,

He has the victory, the battle is won!



May Lord Jesus Christ have all the glory!
