A world affected by the fall,
Rebelling from the Lord of all,
Destruction yet He does not call,
Jehovah seeks redemption.
The foreigner and earthly slave,
May claim this promise that He gave,
Redeemed, protected, helped, and saved,
Jehovah brings redemption.
The sinner who rebellion made,
And flees to God – His judgment stayed,
Made holy by the blood He paid,
Jehovah give redemption.
The earth itself in labors grown,
Uncircumcised with curses thrown,
The gift of God on it is grown,
Jehovah births redemption.
