Our God is Victorious

cross victory

Psalm 40:3 says, He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God.  That is exactly what the Lord has done for me since returning from the Spiritual Leadership Conference in Lancaster, CA.  Each night of the meetings, the choir would sing, Nothing Ever Can; Nothing Ever Will.  I have played it over and over again at my computer, sang it while walking along, humming it, and meditating on the richness of its text.  What a special blessing to sing it this past Sunday morning in ourmorning service.  Added to that joy was a college student on the second row signing the lyrics.  Below you will find the link to the song and the words.  No matter what you may be facing today or in the future, this song will challenge, calm, and charge your heart.  Because our God is always victorious, we can say as 2 Corinthians 2:14, Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and makes manifest the savor of His knowledge by us in every place.

Link: Nothing Ever Can, Nothing Ever Will

(The song begins after the brief prelude piano music)

Lyrics:

1) Every power on earth and in heaven

Is a shadow in His light,

No authority, law or government

Challenges His sovereign might.

 

His reign and rule have no boundary,

All that is, His hands have wrought.

Nothing ever can, nothing ever will

Overcome the Lord our God.

 

2) We are well aware we were orphans once,

Bent and broken in our shame,

Then He sought us out and adopted us,

Now we bear His royal name.

 

Every sin or crime we have ever done

Is no match for Jesus’ blood.

Nothing ever can, nothing ever will

Overcome the Lord, our God.

 

3) We are rescued out of darkest night,

Freed from Satan’s evil hold

And the kingdom of our Savior’s light

Is our soul’s eternal home.

 

Though the enemy tries to steal and kill

What the death of Christ has bought

Nothing ever can, nothing ever will

Overcome the Lord, our God.

 

Bridge

Our God is victorious,

He always wins! He always wins!

In love He reigns over us,

He always wins! He always wins!

 

4)  We, the Church, declare: Jesus Christ is King,

For He conquered death once for all.

We will live in light of His victory

Following His gospel call.

 

And when the story ends we know Jesus wins,

For His power cannot be stopped.

Nothing ever can, nothing ever will

Overcome the Lord, our God.

Nothing ever can, nothing ever will

Overcome the Lord, our God.

    Hi!
    I am looking for a minus one of this song and I’m having a hard time finding one. It’s for our church anniversary at the end of this month. Hope you could help me. Thank you and God bless you more!
