Title: Who Can Boast in Our God to Excess?

Meter: 10 10 10 10 D

Topic: praise, support, supplication

1.

For who can boast in our God to excess?

Of His goodness, longsuff’ring and power?

He grants the weakest of us with success,

And He causes the wasteland to flower.

 

If this is boasting, then so will I boast

Of my light, my life, my redemption from sin,

Of all that I feel, I can’t say the most

But that which I feel, I can’t keep within.

2.

Even the lifeless at His word are raised.

Even the mountains flow down at his call.

Even the tongues of small children sing praise.

Even great legions of enemies fall.

 

If this is boasting, then so will I boast

Of my light, my life, my redemption from sin,

Of all that I feel, I can’t say the most

But that which I feel, I can’t keep within.

3.

Even the heathen to Him bow the knee

Even the faithless draw breath by His might.

Even the mightiest captives are free.

Even the bottomless pit fills with light.

 

If this is boasting, then so will I boast

Of my light, my life, my redemption from sin,

Of all that I feel, I can’t say the most

But that which I feel, I can’t keep within.
