The Great Deliverer

Isaac, Abraham’s sweet delight,
Carried wood for a sacrifice,
But God delivered him.

Job did a godly life attain,
Knew sore sorrow and great pain,
But God delivered him.

Joseph refused Potiphar’s wife,
Then knew a prisoner’s life,
But God delivered him.

David kept lambs in tender care,
Faced the fierce Goliath’s stare,
But God delivered him.

Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego,
Into the furnace they did go.
But God delivered them.

Daniel faithfully knelt in prayer,
Cruelly cast into the lion’s lair.
But God delivered him.

Jesus, redeemer of the lost,
Incurred God’s wrath on the cross.
But God delivered him.

Paul and Silas did salvation tell,
At midnight sang in dank dark cell
But God delivered them.

Saints, ransomed by the Saviour’s grace,
Trail of life you’re sure to face.
But God will deliver you.

Faith and trust are demanded of you,
Your hand in His to carry you through,
And God will deliver you too.
