Representative Text

1 Jesus draws the chosen race
By his sweet resistless grace;
Causing them to hear his call,
And before his power to fall.

2 From the blissful realms above,
Swift as lightning flies his love;
Draws them to his tender breast;
There they find the gospel rest.

3 Then how eagerly they move
In the happy paths of love!
How they glory in the Lord,
Pleased with Jesus’ sacred word!

4 When the Lord appears in view,
Old things cease, and all is new;
Love divine o’erflows the soul;
Love does every sin control.
