My God Is Mighty To Save

The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing. – Zephaniah 3:17 (ESV)

I love when we sing in worship, “Mighty To Save”. When I hear the lyrics and sing along with the community, God brings to mind a new meaning of this verse. I get a lump in my throat as I consider that by His might, God saved me. Me? ME! It’s hard to comprehend why a God who is able to move mountains would choose to focus His strength on redeeming the very soul of one who has so deeply offended Him. But this is the gospel. This is the promise of life with Him! Though we who have done nothing to merit His favor, God, full of mercy and grace, sent His only son, Jesus, to pay the debt we could never pay. Our God, my God, is truly mighty to save.

Mighty to Save – lyrics:

Everyone needs compassion
A love that’s never failing
Let mercy fall on me
Everyone needs forgiveness
A kindness of a Savior
The hope of nations

Savior
He can move the mountains
My God is Mighty to save
He is Mighty to save
Forever
Author of salvation
He rose and conquered the grave
Jesus conquered the grave

So take me as You find me
All my fears and failures
Fill my life again
I give my life to follow
Everything I believe in
Now I surrender
Yes, I surrender

Savior
He can move the mountains
My God is Mighty to save
He is Mighty to save
Forever
Author of salvation
He rose and conquered the grave
Jesus conquered the grave
Shine your light and let the whole world see
We’re singing for the glory of the risen King Jesus
Shine your light and let the whole world see
We’re singing for the glory of the risen King Jesus

Savior
He can move the mountains
My God is Mighty to save
He is Mighty to save
Forever
Author of salvation
He rose and conquered the grave
Jesus conquered the grave

You’re my savior
You can move the mountains
God, You are Mighty to save
You are Mighty to save
Forever
Author of salvation
You rose and conquered the grave
Yes, You conquered the grave
You are Mighty to save
