GOD HAS MERCY ON WHOM HE WILL
God has mercy on whom He will,
And whom He will, He hardens still:
To whom He will He gives His grace,
And when He will, He hides his face.
Let none despise God's sov'reign throne,
He does what He will with His own:
It is His right to save or kill
According to His sov'reign will.
Yes, God saves some and others leaves
To reap the fruit of their own ways-
In the eternal ages past
God made His choice, and it stands fast.
Aware that I'm a guilty man,
And that I'm in God's sov'reign hand,
Prostrate, I fall before His throne
A wretched, helpless, guilty one.
"Lord, if You will, You can," I say,
"Take all my guilt and sin away:
A guilty sinner at Your throne,
I beg for mercy through Your Son."
Now, trusting Jesus Christ God's Son,
I know that I'm His chosen one!
And God's eternal, sov'reign choice
Makes this poor sinner's heart rejoice!
(Tune: Sweet Hour of Prayer)
