Sons we are through God's election|
Who in Jesus Christ alone
By eternal destination
Sov'regin grace we here receive
Lord thy mercy, Lord thy mercy
Does both grace and glory give
Ev'ry fallen soul by sinning
Merits everlasting pain
But thy love, without beginning
Has restored thy sons again
Countless Millions, countless millions
Shall in life through Jesus reign
Pause, my soul, adore and wonder
Ask, O why such love for me?
Grace has put me in the number
Of the Saviour's family
Thanks, eternal thanks to thee!
Since that love had no beginning
And shall never, never cease
Keep, O keep me, Lord from sinning
Guide me in the way of peace!
Make me walk in, Make me walk in
All the paths of holiness
When I quit this feeble mansion
And my soul returns to thee,
Let the pow'r of thy ascension
Manifest itself in me
Through thy Spirit, through thy spirit
Give the final victory!
When the angel sounds the trumpet
When my soul and body join
When my Saviour comes to judgment
Bright in majesty divine
Let me triumph, Let me triumph
In thy righteousness as mine.
When in that blest habitation
Which my God has fore-ordained
When, in glory's full possession
I with saints and angels stand
Free grace only, Free grace only.
Shall resound in heav'n's land
