1 O when shall their souls find a rest,
Their sorrow and struggles be o’er,
Their hearts, by the Saviour possessed,
Be fearing and sighing,
Be fearing and sighing, and sighing no more

Lo! He is Almighty!
Lo! He is Almighty!
Almighty to Save!

2 In Thee there is help, Blessed Lord,
O quickly give ear to our cry,
Till won by the power of Thy word,
Their souls to their Saviour,
Their souls to their Saviour, their Saviour draw nigh.

For He is Almighty!
For He is Almighty!
Almighty to Save!

3 Till idols be cast at Thy feet,
And lives given to Thee, who first gave,
And thus be the vict’ry complete,
For Thou art Almighty!
For Thou art Almighty! Almighty to save!

For Thou art Almighty!
For Thou art Almighty!
Almighty to Save!

4 O Saviour, Thy word we believe,
Thy blood for their cleansing we see,
And, asking in faith, we receive
Souls won and surrendered to Thee.

For Thou art Almighty!
For Thou art Almighty!
Almighty to save!

5 O Lord, may we now comprehend
Thy mercy so high and so deep,
And long may our praises ascend,
For Thou art Almighty to keep!

For Thou art Almighty!
For Thou art Almighty!
Almighty to keep!
