Music and Lyrics by Deborah Johnson ©2012 ASCAP

When there was nothing at all,    And there was darkness in space.

You reached out through the night,    You spoke the world into place.

Dividing sea and the land,  You did all this with your hand.

Created mountain and shore,   FOR YOU ARE FAITHFUL, YOU ARE LORD.

You made an ocean so deep,    Commanded waves to move so free.

You put the creatures that would be,   On every mountain, plain and sea.

And from the earth you took some clay,  Created man to walk that day.

And with a breath your love outpoured,  FOR YOU ARE FAITHFUL, YOU ARE LORD.

When the people that you made,  Turned against the Word you gave.

They had a need to find a way,  For redemption, love and grace.

You sent your Son from Heaven above,   An act of mercy, act of love.

Your saving power to restore,  FOR YOU ARE FAITHFUL, YOU ARE LORD.

When we see what came before,    We find you’re faithful, You are Lord.

So when the wind and rain come down,   We find a love that has no bound.

For when we can’t see past the storm,  You can mend a heart that’s torn.

You are all we need and more,  FOR YOU ARE FAITHFUL, YOU ARE LORD.

You are all we need and more,    FOR YOU ARE FAITHFUL, YOU ARE LORD.
