602 (L.M.) Isaac Watts

Who shall the Lord's elect condemn?

'Tis God that justifies their souls,

And mercy, like a mighty stream,

O'er all their sins divinely rolls.

Who shall adjudge the saints to hell?

'Tis Christ that suffered in their stead;

And, their salvation to fulfill,

Behold Him rising from the dead!

He lives! He lives and sits above,

Forever interceding there:

Who shall divide us from His love?

Or what should tempt us to despair?

Shall persecution, or distress,

Famine, or sword, or nakedness?

He that hath loved us bears us through,

And makes us more than conq'rors too.

Faith hath an overcoming pow'r;

It triumphs in the dying hour:

Christ is our life, our joy, our hope,

Nor can we sink with such a prop.

Not all that men on earth can do,

Nor pow'rs on high, nor pow'rs below,

Shall cause His mercy to remove,

Or wean our hearts from Christ our love.
