lyrics

Verse 1
We were strangers lost, orphans with no home,
and estranged from life and joy and peace,
running headlong bound for the wrath to come,
knowing not when misery would cease.
Then the voice of the Father called,
“Now turn to me, be saved.”
At Your Word, we awoke forever Yours
From the dead You have carried us
to lands of endless days
Where we feast on your goodness and your grace.
Oh, how good to know the Father,
to be rescued sons and daughters,
to be orphans saved to bear the Father’s name.

Verse 2
Now your matchless greatness, your boundless goodness
is for us, for the rest of time.
Every shadow falls, every sorrow comes,
every trial bears kindness to refine.
O great Father of glory, ev’ry gift is from Your hand;
in Your mercy You give and take away.
Those who cry with a crushed
and broken spirit You will save;
all Your children, they find in You their strength.
Oh how good to know the Father,
for his love unites with power;
with his mighty hand, He lifts the lowly head.

Verse 3
Father, take this life do what’er You choose,
form us into the image of Your Son.
Make us worthy of Christ, the risen one,
and the rich inheritance He won.
Cause Your greatness to shine through us,
bring glory to Your name.
Let Your Spirit transform our worldly deeds.
To Your kingdom we march
and for Your righteousness we pray;
set our hearts, fix our gaze on things above.
Oh how good to know the Father,
to be heirs with Christ, our brother
and to dwell forever in the love of God.
