IF GOD BEGINS HIS WORK OF GRACE
(Tune: There Is A Fountain #222 CM)
If God begins His work of grace
In any sinner's heart,
That sinner He will keep secure -
From Christ he can't depart.
The objects of eternal love
Shall persevere, I know
Chosen, redeemed, and called by grace,
God will not let them go.
Frustrated, grace can never be:
Christ did not die in vain!
All those for whom He shed His blood
Eternal life must gain!
Who can condemn the blood-bought soul,
Or charge God's own with sin?
In Christ we're freely justified.
With Him we'll ever reign!
Grace shall complete what grace began -
All glory to the Lord!
Eternally we'll shout His praise -
"Salvation's of the Lord!"
