640 (L.M.) John Kent

When from the truth professors turn,

Jesus reject and mercy spurn,

To Zion God this truth shall show:

That with the wheat the tares shall grow.

He knows the number and the names

Whom Christ redeemed from Tophet's flames,

Nor shall the fall of sinners make

The base of mercy's building shake.

Though twice ten thousand sinners go

Down to the shades of endless woe,

His love, from all mutation free,

The guard of His elect shall be.

To fall from thence, if God be true,

No sinner shall whom He foreknew;

Or 'til His hand shall once deface

The ancient records of His grace.

From Jesus neither fire nor flood

Shall rend the purchase of His blood;

Whom He redeemed with Him shall rise,

To fill a mansion in the skies.

Triumphant grace, though men oppose,

Shall save the remnant God hath chose;

Salvation's free, and shall be giv'n

To all the blood-bought heirs of heav'n.
