To speak of His wonderful deeds
Is never a chore or a burden;
It’s the news that everyone needs.
Once, I dwelt in a wilderness valley
Surrounded by mountains of doubt;
My life—a fathomless folly—
He reached down and lifted me out.
He placed me in valleys most verdant
By the banks of a life-giving stream,
By wind of His Spirit resurgent,
By light of His Word all agleam.
It’s my joy to speak of His goodness,
My pleasure to share as He leads;
For Christ Who dispelled all my darkness,
Through His riches supplies all my needs.
My challenge—to be always faithful
To speak out the truth from my soul,
In love overflowing and grateful,
And Jesus alone to extol.
One day in the vistas most splendid—
May we meet in that wonderful place—
Death, mourning and tears having ended,
When Christ we will see face to face.
So while I have breath I’ll keep writing—
May His Spirit supply to my pen—
Forever in truth be delighting
And challenge the darkness and sin.
I write of a Saviour most worthy,
I speak of His wonderful deeds;
It’s never a chore or a burden:
Joyful news that everyone needs.
