Election-Tis a Word Divine
(Tune: #52 – Majestic Sweetness -- CM)
1. “Election!” — ‘Tis a word divine!
For, Lord, I plainly see,
Had not Thy choice preceded mine,
I ne’er had chosen Thee.
2. For perseverance, strength I’ve none;
But on this I depend—
That Jesus, having loved His own,
Will love them to the end.
3. Empty and bare, I come to Thee
For righteousness divine;
O may Thy matchless merits be,
By imputation mine!
