Redeemer Almighty

From Job 19:25:  “For I know that my vindicator lives and that in the end He will stand upon the earth.”

From Psalm 19:14:  “Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable to You, Lord, my rock and my redeemer.”

Living in weakness

Walking this barren land

Redeemer Almighty

Searching for His hand


Feeling emptiness

Finding Gospel’s password

Redeemer Almighty

Feeding on His Word


Wandering journey

Hungering for His peace

Redeemer Almighty

Unlocking life’s lease


Accepting His grace

Hearing hallowed Good News

Redeemer Almighty

Stepping up to choose


Lasting faithfulness

Scaling redemption’s ridge

Redeemer Almighty

Building Heaven’s bridge



Welsh-born Methodist preacher William Williams (1717-1791) wrote the inspiring lyrics of the hymn, “Guide Me Ever, Great Redeemer.”  When one hears the verses, it is easy to appreciate his nickname, “Watts of Wales.”  Some translations of the hymn are titled “Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah.”
