Begin, my soul, a heavenly theme

Begin, my soul, a heavenly theme,
awake, my voice, and sing
the mighty works and mightier name
of our eternal King.

2. Tell of his changeless faithfulness,
make known his power abroad,
sing the sweet promise of his grace,
the wonder-working God.

3. Proclaim salvation from the Lord
to all our dying race;
his hand set down the sacred word—
his messages of grace.

4. Engraved as in eternal brass
his mighty promise shines;
nor can the powers of hell erase
those everlasting lines.

5. His every word of grace is strong
as that which built the skies;
the voice that rolls the stars along
speaks all the promises.

6. So shall my leaping heart rejoice
to know my heaven secure;
I trust his all-creating voice
and faith desires no more.
