34. Deep And Precious

1 Deep and precious,
Strong and gracious
Is the Word of God above,
Gently calling
Sinners falling,
To the Savior’s arm of love.
Unto all the Word is given:
Jesus is the way to heaven.

2 Precious Savior,
Wondrous favor
Hast Thou shown our fallen race.
Worlds may falter,
Times may alter,
Nothing moves Thy Word of grace.
With Thy word Thy grace abideth,
And for all our needs provideth.

3 By Thy Spirit,
Thro' Thy merit,
Draw all sinners, Lord, to Thee.
Sin and error,
Death and terror
By Thy word shall vanquished be.
Lead us all thro' life’s straight portal,
Till we reach the life immortal.
