To the Jew first, then the Gentile too
This includes me and you, he shows
Himself to all who'll take heed, you'll

Come to know, he's all that you need,
When everyone ignores or abandons,
He's always faithful and steady when

You're about to give up, lifts you above
The miry clay, extends his comforting
Hand of compassion and love, in your

Need he gives an ear to listen and hear,
No one can care as he does, his strong
Arm holds you against his chest, in him

There is rest for your weary soul, while
He takes you and makes you whole and
Blessed, his ways are always best, as he

Gives peace in chaos, rebirth in adversity
Redemption from the life of sin, you will
Never be left on your own or alone again.
