“The Lord of Hosts Will Be Your Own”

Categories: Hymns, M. W. Bassford

The Lord of Hosts will be your own,

Your husband and Redeemer too;

As to a wife cast off and scorned,

The Lord your God has called to you:


“I left you lonely for a time

And in My anger hid My face,

But I will gather you to Me

With everlasting love and grace.”


“For as in Noah's days I swore

To never flood the earth again,

So I have sworn to cease My wrath,

And I will not rebuke your sin.”


“Although the mountains may depart,

Although the ancient hills may quake,

My love will not depart from you;

My pledge of peace will never shake.”
