Lyrics

There’s power, mighty power
In the word of the King;
He speaks, and the captive is free;
The lips of the dumb
With rejoicing shall sing;
O speak, blessèd Savior, to me!

Refrain

O the power, mighty power,
In the word of my Savior and king!
O the power, mighty power!
For Jesus salvation shall bring.

There’s power, mighty power
In the pardoning word;
He said, Go, and sin now no more!
How sweet was the hour
When forgiveness I heard,
And mercy had opened the door!

Refrain

There’s power, mighty power
In the word of the Lord,
And strength He will give, when we pray,
To follow His footsteps,
Is goodness record,
And walk in love’s beautiful way.
