Let the Nations Be Glad - Song for February

Throughout the month of February we'll be celebrating God's faithfulness through the Missions ministries at HPC. One of the ways we'll be doing this is by learning the song "Let the Nations Be Glad" in our worship service. The title of this song comes from Psalm 67 where we read:

"Let the nations be glad and sing for joy,
for you judge the peoples with equity
and guide the nations upon earth.      Selah
Let the peoples praise you, O God;
let all the peoples praise you!"

This song captures the mission God has called the church to accomplish while we await his return and reminds us that "salvation belongs to our God." I hope it is an encouragement to your soul as we learn it together and use it to worship our gracious God.

Let the Nations Be Glad

Let the glory of the Lord forever be our joy
May redemption be the theme of our song
For by grace we have been saved
And by grace we shall proclaim
To the corners of the earth that Christ has come

Chorus:
Let the nations be glad,  Let the peoples rejoice
For salvation belongs to our God
Let the whole earth be filled with the praises of the Lord
For salvation belongs to our God
Let the nations be glad

Through the ages gone before
Through the trial and the sword
Many saints and martyrs conquered, though they died
Still we're holding out the cross
Crossing oceans, suffering loss
Shall endure all things to win the crown of life

As Your holy church goes forth
In the Holy Spirit's power
With the glories of the gospel to explain
Now we pray Your kingdom come
And we pray Your will be done
For the honor and the glory of Your name
