THE TIME OF LOVE
(Tune: #118 When I Survey – LM)
There is a time, (“The time of love!”),
Appointed by our God above,
When every sinner bought by blood
Shall be called out and brought to God.
Though lost and senseless of their need,
Pursuing every lust and greed,
Those chosen rebels cannot move
Beyond the limits of God’s love!
In mercy God has hedged the way
In which He lets His chosen stray.
In secret love God keeps His own,
Until the time of love has come.
Almighty grace will then prevail
To break the chosen sinner’s will;
And willingly, my friend, you’ll come
To God by faith in Christ His Son!
