1 Here in God’s Word is a message,
Written, His grace to proclaim,
“Jesus, the Saviour, will ransom
All who believe on His Name.”

Wonderful, wonderful message,
Sent from the kingdom above,
Telling of wisdom and mercy,
Telling of kindness and love,
Wonderful, wonderful message,
Given to you and to me,
“Jesus has offered salvation,
Jesus has set us free.”

2 Old as the hoariest ages,
New to each heart that believes,
“All who will come to His altar
Jesus with welcome receives.” [Refrain]

3 Open your hearts to its teachings,
Hear and accept Him today,
“Christ, by His blood has redeemed us,
He is the Truth and the way.” [Refrain]
