Who shall the Lord's elect condemn?

Isaac Watts

Fonto : Baptist Hymnal (1883) str. 1-3, 6; TCH str. 4, 5

  1. Who shall the Lord's elect condemn?
    'Tis God who justifies their souls;
    And mercy, like a mighty stream,
    O'er all their sins divinely rolls!

  2. Who shall adjudge the saints to hell?
    'Tis Christ who suffered in their stead;
    And, their salvation to fulfill,
    Behold him rising from the dead!

  3. He lives! he lives! and sits above,
    Forever interceding there;
    Who shall divide us from his love,
    Or what shall tempt us to despair?

  4. Shall persecution, or distress,
    Famine, or sword, or nakedness?
    He that hath loved us bears us through,
    And makes us more than conquerors too.

  5. Faith hath an overcoming power;
    It triumphs in the dying hour:
    Christ is our life, our joy, our hope,
    Nor can we sink with such a prop.

  6. Nor all that men on earth can do,
    Nor powers on high, nor powers below,
    Shall cause his mercy to remove,
    Or wean our hearts from Christ, our love.
