Made New

At one time Your book to me
A foreign language was like to be
Yet now oh Lord Your book is dear
Like the most delightful music to my ear

With ears that have now been washed in grace
And new eyes that will one day behold Your face
New affections too, with which to love Thee
And new hope because You have promised with us to be

All of these wonders and much more
Because You have enabled us to truly adore
Yourself, You who overflow with matchless worth
You whose glories fill Heaven and Earth

I've heard You say, "Behold I make all things new"
You have demonstrated that Your Word is powerful and true
By going through such extraordinary measures
To forgive sinners and transform wretches into treasures

- A.B. Seal
