BLESSED RELATIONSHIP WITH THE LORD
How blessed am I to enjoy my relationship* with the Lord
Since I’ve been bound to Him with His salvation-cord
I can come to Him, yielding myself to the grace He does afford
Thru the invitation He declares in His Word.
How blessed am I to commune with the Lord without hesitation
Since I’ve become His child by virtue of His adoption
I can talk to Him, expressing myself in earnest supplication
Thru the answer He assures by His compassion.
How blessed am I to stay always in the Lord’s presence
Since I’ve been forgiven by His purifying license
I can worship Him, immersing myself in His holy magnificence
Thru the cleansing He grants for my soul’s effervescence.
How blessed am I to seek the Lord freely for my faith’s refining perfectly
Since I’ve become His heir by His blood-priced sacrifice truly
I can meet Him, humbling myself at His throne sincerely
Thru the fellowship He initiates blissfully.
How blessed am I to cling to the Lord with divine intimacy
Since I’ve been redeemed by His tender mercy
I can cleave to Him, submitting myself to His miracles’ fervency
Thru the help He offers midst turmoil of urgency.
How blessed am I to be acquainted with the Lord’s ways
Since I’ve become His new creation to give Him praise
I can live for Him, delighting myself in His work all through my days
Thru the love He covers me, wrapped by His care’s embrace.
How blessed am I to abide in the Lord to experience His glory
Since I’ve been rescued from hell’s damnation and sin’s misery
I can serve Him, committing myself to proclaim His Gospel story
Thru the blessings He provides along His promised victory.
*Psalm115:15 Ye are blessed of the LORD which made heaven and earth.
