Jesus Saw His Church Don Fortner

(Tune: #294 — Savior, Like a Shepherd Lead Us —87.87.87)


1.    Jesus saw His church elected,

And betrothed her as His own.

She can never be rejected,

But shall join Him on His throne.

How He loved her! How He loved her!

Before time or sin were known!


2.    Jesus saw His church when fallen

Into sin, death, and disgrace.

When her state was most appalling,

Stood as SurÕty in her place!

How He loved her! How He loved her!

Oh, how firm and free His grace!


3.    Jesus saw His church in bondage,

In her guilt, far off from God.

So He met the claims of justice,

And redeemed her with His blood!

How He loved her! How He loved her!

See His love written in blood!


4.    Jesus sees His church when straying,

Brings her back by sovÕreign grace!

Graciously, He keeps her watching,

Waiting to behold His face.

How He loves her! How He loves her!

And in heavÕn prepares her place.
