God To The End Will Carry On


Don Fortner


(Tune: Jesus, and Shall It Ever Be? #400†† LM)


Did God from everlasting move

††††† To-ward me in eternal love?

††††† That love, unchangeable, the same

††††† Remains, whateíer my state or frame.



Has grace upon this sinner shone?

††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††† Then grace will bring me safely home.

††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††† God to the end will carry on

††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††† The work which in me He begun.



Did Jesus die, my Substitute?

††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††† He will not leave me destitute

††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††† Of any grace or blessedness

††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††† Or fail to bring me into bliss.



If I am by Godís Spirit born,

††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††† I shall into His Kingdom come.

††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††† `Midst all my sins, and guilt, and woe

††††† The Spirit will not let me go.



My soul through countless changes goes.

††††††††††††††††††††††† †††† Godís love no variation knows!

††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††† My God will perfectly perform

††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††† His work in me, a sinful worm.



My soul into Christís arms I cast

††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††† And trust I shall be saved at last.

††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††† Saved by Godís free and sovíreign grace

††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††† Through Jesusí blood and righteousness!
