Not only in the pow’r of mere mortal’s word
But in the Spirit’s mighty peace the gospel came;
Despite the loss you rejoiced in what you heard.
We bless our God and Father, lift up His name
When fond memories of you arise within–
For forgetting you we could never be blamed.
Good news you heard: the forgiveness of your sins,
And the echoes of your joy are ringing still,
My brothers, believers, and thankfully, friends!
Not idols’ feasts, but on Christ you find your fill–
On Him, the resurrected King you now love–
And rejoice to do the one true Sovereign’s will.
You wait for King Jesus’ return from above.
