He Is Able To Deliver Thee (Hymn)

He Is Able To Deliver Thee
William Ogden (1887)

’Tis the grandest theme through the ages rung;
’Tis the grandest theme for a mortal tongue;
’Tis the grandest theme that the world e’er sung,
“Our God is able to deliver thee.”

Refrain
He is able to deliver thee,
He is able to deliver thee;
Though by sin oppressed, go to Him for rest;
“Our God is able to deliver thee.”

’Tis the grandest theme in the earth or main;
’Tis the grandest theme for a mortal strain;
’Tis the grandest theme, tell the world again,
“Our God is able to deliver thee.”

Refrain

’Tis the grandest theme, let the tidings roll,
To the guilty heart, to the sinful soul;
Look to God in faith, He will make thee whole,
“Our God is able to deliver thee.”

Refrain

This is the “grandest theme” – He is able to deliver us.  We have been and are oppressed by sin; it is He Who alone is able to help us and deliver us.  Isn’t it great to serve a God that we know is able to deliver us?  We don’t have to wonder or worry if He can do as He said.  We know that “He is able!”
