Godís Elect Can Never FailóJoseph Hart
(Tune: #526óCome, Ye Thankful People, Comeó77.77D)
Brethren, would you know your stay,
What it is supports you still?
Why, though tempted evíry day,
Yet you stand, and stand you will?
Long before our (infant) birth,
Nay, before Jehovah laid
The foundations of the earth,
We were chosen in our Head.
Godís election is the ground
Of our hope to persevere;
On this rock your building found,
And preserve your title clear.
Infidels may (scoff and) laugh,
Pharisees gainsay and rail,
Hereís your tenure (keep it safe)ó
Godís elect can never fail!
