1 “He is able to deliver,”
Sing the joyful strain,
“He is able to deliver,”
Tell it out again,
He is able to deliver
All that come to Him in faith,
He is able to deliver
Even unto death.

Chorus:
Able to deliver,
Able to deliver,
He is able to deliver
All that come to Him in faith.

2 He is able to deliver
From the chains of sin,
He is able to deliver,
Shout the joyful strain;
He is able to deliver,
See how patiently He stands!
He is able to deliver
Thee with willing hands. [Chorus]

3 He is able to deliver
From the foeman strong,
He is able to deliver,
All the journey long;
He is able to deliver,
Trust Him boldly, never fear;
He is able to deliver,
Let the nations hear. [Chorus]
