1 Swell with heart and voice the song,
Let the chorus roll along,
Christ is able to deliver;
Tell his wondrous pow'r to save,
Shout his vict'ry o'er the grave,
He is able to deliver.

Chorus:
He is able to deliver,
Shout the story o'er the mountains and the wave,
Ring it out afar and near,
It will scatter ev'ry fear,
He is able to deliver and to save.

2 Tell it over hill and plain,
From the strength of evil's chain
Christ is able to deliver;
Hallelujah! grace is free,
In the Lord is liberty,
He is able to deliver. [Chorus]

3 He can take our sin away,
Change our darkness into day,
Christ is able to deliver;
Underneath the fountain's flow
Ev'ry heart may be like snow,
He is able to deliver. [Chorus]
