Hymn/Song Information

ADOPTION




All the Lord's honoured, chosen race,
Adopted were by sovereign grace;
As viewed in Christ they ever stood
The children of the living God.


The Lord eternally foresaw
That they would break his holy law,
And sink in guilt and deep disgrace.
With all the train of Adam's race.


The Father's heart o'erflow'd with love.
And sent down Jesus from above;
The Son poured out his precious blood,
To bring the children back to God.


Under the sway of mighty grace
They see their father's shining face,
Smiling a great salvation down
On ev'ry dear, returning son.


Lord, may we all our sonship know.
As we by faith to Jesus go;
And. in believing, may we prove
Our Father's rich, adopting love.
