1 There is, beyond the azure blue;
A God, concealed from human sight.
He tinted skies with heav’nly hue
And framed the worlds with His great might.
There is a God, He is alive,
In Him we live and we survive;
From dust our God created man,
He is our God, the great I Am.
2 There was a long, long time ago,
A God whose voice the prophets heard.
He is the God that we should know,
Who speaks from His inspired word.
3 Secure, is life from mortal mind,
God holds the germ within His hand,
Though men may search, they cannot find,
for God alone does understand.
4 Our God, whose Son upon a tree,
A life was willing there to give,
That He from sin might set man free,
And evermore with Him could live.
and the Living one; and I was dead, and behold, I am alive for evermore, and I have the keys of death and of Hades.
But now hath Christ been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of them that are asleep.
