Promise of Power


Tune: Gopsal

('Rejoice, the Lord is King')

Ephesians 1 v.19-23


Church of God, now arise

Press onwards to the prize

The day when we shall be

For 'er with the lord free

The Father's promise, the Spirit

Jesus sends to us, our way lit


The exceeding greatness

Of His power, true this

Unto us who believe

The Spirit we receive

According to God's mighty power

Dependent on Him each hour


His mighty power, the same

When in His Son's acclaim

He raised Him from the dead

he e'er our living Head

God seated Him at His right hand

He rules and reigns o'er every land


In heaven, far above all

Names that mankind can call

All principalities

And power, might, e'en these

Shall bow to His dominion

And worship Him, the worthy one


Not in this age only

But in the age, so be

That is to come, thoug hwe

As yet we it not see

God has put all things 'neath Christ's feet

He Head o'er all things, it is meet* (*apt, suitable)


He Head over all things

To the church, it Him brings

Him homage, and church be

His body spiritually

The fulness of Him that does fill

All in all, His reign of good will

  • Comment from author about the poem: A hymn-poem in I grumble bout some churches always seeming to want money. That should not be their main purpose. One church puts finance details on first page of their Website every week! Meanwhile - send all contributions to me (heehee).

    The tune is 'Gopsal' for some reason, not 'Gospel'.

          Looking at a sculpture, in my studio, with a hologram of 'Lucy' a 3.5 million-year-old girl. Wonder if she sang and to who?
