In times of lack or in time of wealth;
In times of sickness or time of health,
The Lord does protect and provide,
His love and mercy He does not hide.
Our God is a powerful God,
Our God is a merciful God.
To Him we offer our tribute of praise,
He is the God that blesses our days.
We, who are many, gather as one,
To lift voices in praise to God’s Son.
His Spirit fills us till we overflow,
Then His love we can’t help but show.
Our God is righteous and just,
Our God is the one we can trust.
He has proven His love in every age,
His word promises it on every page.
On a rugged old cross, long ago,
He bled and died His love to show.
With His blood He paid the price,
It was for us that He did sacrifice.
It is the God of mercy and might,
That guards us in this perilous fight.
So when I feel weak and small,
It is to Him, my Lord God that I call.
