Lyrics

There’s pow­er, migh­ty pow­er
In the word of the King;
He speaks, and the cap­tive is free;
The lips of the dumb
With re­joici­ng shall sing;
O speak, bless­èd Sav­ior, to me!

Refrain

O the pow­er, migh­ty pow­er,
In the word of my Sav­ior and king!
O the pow­er, migh­ty pow­er!
For Je­sus sal­va­tion shall bring.

There’s pow­er, migh­ty pow­er
In the par­don­ing word;
He said, Go, and sin now no more!
How sweet was the hour
When for­give­ness I heard,
And mer­cy had op­ened the door!

Refrain

There’s pow­er, migh­ty pow­er
In the word of the Lord,
And strength He will give, when we pray,
To fol­low His foot­steps,
Is good­ness re­cord,
And walk in love’s beau­ti­ful way.

Refrain
