Man lived in darkness
Until the Lord revealed
How much He loved Him
He came to us here

Man fought God’s loving
Refusing to obey
Instead choosing failure
That’s the price pagans pay

Claiming us in Israel
The Lord carried them
Took them home from Egypt
Many continued in sin

Nothing they could pay Him
He did it because He loves
Concerned for their future
He lived with them by love

He carries us on angel’s wings
Active in our lives
Nothing can destroy us
The Lord gives good advice

He has a right to claim us
We are made in His form
The world wants to destroy
Each child that claims Christ’s name

In Jesus we have refuge
In The Lord is our strength
His love is overpowering
His presence compels our belief
