††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Praise the Lord for His election,

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Unconditional and free,

††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††Fountain of all covenant blessings

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† From our God the sacred Three.

 

††††††††††††††††††††††††† Refrain:

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Freely chosen to salvation,

†††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††For the glory of Godís grace,

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Saved without works or conditions,

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† God alone shall have our praise.

 

††††† By the Father we were chosen,

††††††††† Through the Spirit sanctified,

†††††††††† Unto Jesusí blood atonement,

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† By which we were justified.

 

†††† God of sovereign, free election,

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† We will praise You ever more!

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Your decree and sovereign purpose

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Give us hope both strong and sure.

 

†††† Neither sin, nor hell can alter

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Your immutable decree:

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† All whom God has loved and chosen

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Shall with God in glory be!
