I Testify of Jesus Christ
I testify of Jesus Christ, My Lord, My King Omnipotent,
Who framed the worlds and scattered stars throughout the firmament.
Who from the dust of earth formed man and gave us breath that we might move.
And gave us laws to serve our God and live with Him in love.
I testify of Jesus Christ, My God, My Unseen Comforter,
For I have sought Him oft through prayer and found Him waiting there.
I have not touched His wounded hands nor yet beheld His holy face
But I have felt His love for me and heart His gentle voice.
I testify of Jesus Christ, Beloved Savior, Precious Friend,
Who suffered death and hell’s abyss to ransom me from sin.
Who came when demons sought my soul and banished them with sword of light.
And when despair would steal my hope His presence stilled the night.
When with all flesh my eyes shall see my blessed Savior face to face
My witness then shall not exceed the truth I know this day.
For God has written Jesus’ name with pen of flame upon my soul
And how can I but testify of Jesus Christ my Lord?
