Sunday Hymnary: “Creator God, Our Sovereign Lord” by Douglas Bond (2007)

(Scroll down for a gorgeous YouTube presentation of this hymn.)

Creator God, our Sovereign Lord,

The heavens tell, the stars have shown,

Your splendor, might, and Deity,

But Truth lies in your Word alone.

My heart to you, O God, I give,

And by your Word I live.

~~~~~~~~~~

In Truth your Word reveals my guilt,

My lost, unworthy self makes known,

But now made new I’m justified

And live and move by Faith alone.

My heart to you, O God, I give,

And now by Faith I live.

~~~~~~~~~~

Before you made the world you chose,

In love, to send your only Son

To ransom me and make me one

With Christ, my Lord, by Grace alone.

My heart to you, O God, I give,

And now by Grace I live.

~~~~~~~~~~

O Christ, Redeemer, Savior, King,

Subdued by grace, I am your own;

Enthrall my soul and make me free,

Reformed, redeemed by Christ alone.

My heart to you, O God, I give,

And now in Christ I live.

~~~~~~~~~~

O glorious God, who reigns on high,

With heart in hand, before your throne,

We hymn your glory ‘round the world

With psalms adoring you alone.

My heart to you, O God, I give

And for your glory live.

  1. You’re right, it’s a beautiful hymn and I’m surprised it’s so new. It has the wonderful majestic sound of old, a very worshipful song indeed.
