592 (P.M.) Joseph Hart

Brethren, would you know your stay,

What it is supports you still?

Why, though tempted ev'ry day,

Yet you stand, and stand you will?

Long before our birth,

Nay, before Jehovah laid

The foundations of the earth,

We were chosen in our Head.

God's election is the ground

Of our hope to persevere;

On this rock your building found,

And preserve your title clear.

Infidels may laugh;

Pharisees gainsay or rail;

Here's your tenure — keep it safe —

God's elect can never fail!
