Chosen in eternal love

By my God, Who reigns above, (Blood of the incarnate God!)

I belong to Christ my God.

Born again by grace Divine,

Called by pow'r in God's own time,

God the Spirit gave me faith

And delivered me from death:

I now live in Christ my God.


By profession I have said,

"Jesus is my sov'reign Head:

All I am and own I bring

Under rule to Christ my King:

I submit to Christ my God."


Chosen and redeemed and called,

Let no fear my heart intrude:

Christ will feed and clothe His own,

And protect me by His throne:

I will trust Him, Christ my God.


Savior, let me live on earth

To proclaim Your matchless worth:

In body and spirit, Lord,

I would glorify my God:

I will live for Christ my God.


Though my sinful flesh rebel,

Force me, Lord, to do Your will:

When my work on earth is done,

Bring me safely to Your throne:

I will see my Christ, my God!
