AMAZED I STAND
Amazed I stand in reverence, Before Thy wondrous Word.
The Word that called me to Thee, The message yet unheard.
Its power worked life within me, To turn me from despair.
And brought to me the image, Of God’s great love for’er.
Within the channeled waters, That flowed with power and peace.
I found my sins forgiven, The old man thus to cease.
Dead thus to feel the power, Of God’s redeeming hand.
To rise again to new life, The hope for every man.
When kneeling at Thine altar, I see the Bread and Wine.
By faith I see my Savior, Who died for all mankind.
Whose broken body feeds me, And strengthened by the cup.
I rise to know He loves me, And take my cross still up.
Praise God for Word unending, Praise God for water still.
Praise God for bread still broken, Praise God for cup to fill.
Praise God all nations round us, Praise God within my heart.
Praise God for future boundless, Praise God He ne’er departs.
