Salvation Is of Our Lord!

"I will pay what I have vowed. Salvation is of the Lord" (Jonah 2:9).

Sunrise over ocean waves


1.   We, Your children, praise You, Father,
         And receive Your love outpour’d.
     We proclaim this truth in wonder:
         Salvation is of our Lord!

2.   We were sinners lost in darkness,
         Bound to death by sin’s strong cord.
     Your free grace has wrought our freedom;
         Salvation is of our Lord!

3.   We, Your saints beforehand chosen,
         Called of God, by You adored,
     Given part in Christ’s atonement;
         Salvation is of our Lord!

4.   Guide us, Father, as we worship,
         Join our hearts in one accord.
     Joyfully we sing before You:
         Salvation is of our Lord!

"Salvation Is of Our Lord!"
WORDS: Ken Puls, September 22, 1985
MUSIC: John B. Dykes (1857)
THEME: God's Sovereignty in Salvation

According to my journal, I composed this hymn as “a call to worship proclaiming God’s sovereignty in salvation as well as in creation.” The title is taken from the prayer recorded in the 2nd chapter of Jonah. In this prayer Jonah says: “Yet You have brought up my life from the pit, O Lord my God (2:6)” At the end of the prayer in verse 9 he declares: “Salvation is of the Lord.”
