Lyrics: Verse 1: <br/> <br/>How sweet thy voice, delicious thy word <br/>Which feeds the hungry soul, <br/>And calms the needy from pain, from sin, <br/>Refreshing souls within. <br/> <br/>Thy arms do shelter us <br/>From the storm; <br/>Thy love sustains us and warms. <br/>Thy word gives counsel <br/>And peace mid strife, <br/>And carries us through life. <br/> <br/>Verse 2: <br/> <br/>Thou art the balm <br/>That heals all wounds <br/>And pains within the soul. <br/>Thou art the one who <br/>In darkest night <br/>Calms fears and gives us light. <br/> <br/>Thou art the Firstborn <br/>Who lives again <br/>And rescues us from sin. <br/>Thou paid the ransom <br/>That we might live; <br/>Eternal life thou gives. <br/> <br/>Chorus: <br/> <br/>Oh Christ, our Lord and King, <br/>To us salvation bring. <br/>Thy voice and word doth show <br/>Thy everlasting love. <br/> <br/>Thy peace restores our souls. <br/>Thou lights our path before. <br/>Thou leads and guides us home <br/>To God our Father once more. <br/>
