ELECTION IS A WORK DIVINE††††††

Don Fortner

(Tune: Majestic Sweetness #52†† CM)

 

Election is a work divine, Both absolute and free,

††† A blessing from forever mine, By Godís all-wise decree.

 

Before my God creation raised, (The earth, the skies, the sun),

††† He chose a people for His praise, And gave them to His Son.

 

Nothing in earth, heaven, or hell Can alter His decree.

††† The chosen, by His sovíreign will, Shall all Godís glory see!

 

Those sinners whom the Father chose, The Son by blood redeemed,

††† Nor shall the Spirit ever lose Those called and sealed by Him.

 

Come, chosen sinners, bought by blood And called by sovíreign grace,

††† Let us extol the blessed God Who chose us for His praise!
