His Decree

by Clinton Herring © 2023

The songs of praise now fill my life.
I'm wrapped in love from head to toe.
They quell the fear and all the strife.
My Lord, the Son, who beat the foe.

His work in me swells up in praise,
I walk in truth that knows no bound.
To glorify Him all my days.
I walk with Him; in Him, I'm found.

His word is now my daily light.
His joy's a time of ecstasy.
This Word clears haze and grants new sight.
His mercy grants that I'm now free.

I'm found in Him, yes, every day.
I have a New life granted free.
My sins are slain by mercy's way.
New creature I am by His decree!

2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.
