595 (L.M.) William Tucker

Deep in the everlasting mind,

The great mysterious purpose lay

Of choosing some from lost mankind,

Whose sins the Lamb should bear away.

Them, loved with an eternal love,

To grace and glory He ordained;

Gave them a throne which cannot move,

And will preserve them to the end.

In these He was resolved to make

The riches of His goodness known;

These He accepts for Jesus' sake,

And views them righteous in His Son.

No goodness God foresaw in His

But what His grace decreed to give;

No comeliness in them there is

Which they did not from Him receive.

Faith and repentance He bestows

On such as He designs to save;

From Him their soul's obedience flows,

And He shall all the glory have.
