(Tune: Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus  #84  87.87)


Lift your heart, downcast believer,

Christ will keep you in His way.

Though you've strayed, He's still your Savior!

"He hateth putting away!"


Graven on His hands in mercy,

He who did your ransom pay,

Will not now withdraw His mercy -

“He hateth putting away!"


God will not your soul now reject,

Or despise you when you pray.

He hears the groans of His elect,

And "hateth putting away!"


Endless is our God's compassion.

Grace, more boundless than the sea!

He will lose none of His chosen.

"He hateth putting away!"
