GOD'S ELECT ARE KEPT SECURE
Christ the Lamb was foreordained,
And before all time was slain:
In God's purpose Christ the Lamb
Stood for us, and we in Him.
God's elect are kept secure,
To the end we shall endure;
By His pow'r and by His grace
God preserves His chosen race!
Though we fell with Adam's race,
God's elect are kept by grace,
Kept alive until they're called,
One by one, to Jesus called.
In the fullness of God's time,
Christ bought us by blood Divine,
God the Spirit calls His own
And preserves them everyone.
Though trials come and Satan roar
And temptations press us sore,
Though we often, often sin,
Still God's grace remains within.
Blessed, blessed is the man
To whom God will not charge sin!
Chosen and preserved by grace,
This poor sinner sings God's praise!
(Tune: Trusting Jesus)
