David & Goliath
James J. J. Tissot (1836-1902)

When Abraham and Sarah
Had promised them a son,
They were surprised and knew not what to say;
But they knew what God had promised
He was able to perform:
And the power of God is just the same today.

Refrain

The pow’r of God is just the same today,
It doesn’t matter what the people say;
Whatever God has promised
He’s able to perform:
And the power of God is just the same today.

When Moses wanted water
To quench the people’s thirst,
He knew that God would then provide a way;
Although his rod was useful
He had the power first:
And the power of God is just the same today.

Refrain

When Moses made a serpent
And placed it on a pole,
The bitten ones were told to look that way,
And then while they were looking
Jehovah-rophi made them whole:
And the power of God is just the same today.

Refrain

When Joshua was commander,
He spoke—the sun stood still,
The moon its onward course was made to stay;
Thus he won a mighty battle,
For he did his Father’s will:
And the power of God is just the same today.

Refrain

When Naaman, the leper,
Before Elisha stood,
He thought he knew just what the seer would say,
But he had to wash in Jordan,
Though he thought it wasn’t good:
And the power of God is just the same today.

Refrain

When David met Goliath
Me meant to have a fight,
The leaders put the battle in array;
Of course he killed the giant,
For he was in the right:
And the power of God is just the same today.

Refrain

When Jonah went to Tarshish
To flee away from God,
A mighty fish was waiting for its prey;
It quickly swallowed Jonah,
Then threw him on the sod:
And the power of God is just the same today.

Refrain

When Malachi, the prophet,
Was preaching all abroad,
And cutting like sickle and the scythe;
The people were accursed,
For they were robbing God,
They filled to bring the offering and the tithe.

Refrain

Then came the blessed Savior,
With power to cleanse and heal,
To bear my sin and sickness all away;
My burdens, too, He carries,
And doth my sorrows feel:
And the power of God is just the same today.

Refrain

Through Paul and Silas singing
And praying in the jail,
For Pau and Silas knew the way to pray;
The prison doors were opened,
For locks could not avail,
And the power of God is just the same today.

Refrain
