A Thought

AMAZING GRACE
If you do not believe in the biblical doctrine of ELECTION, you do not understand what it means to be saved by SOVEREIGN GRACE. You will have to write a song entitled AMAZING DECISION, how sweet the sound! It is either by GRACE or by something else, and, since it is by GRACE ALONE. it must be because of ELECTING LOVE.
Amazing grace! how sweet the sound, That saved a wretch like me! I once was lost, but now am found, Was blind, but now I see.
'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear, And grace my fears relieved: How precious did that grace appear, The hour I first believed!
Through many dangers, toils and snares, I have already come: 'Tis grace has brought me safe thus far, And grace will lead me home.
The Lord has promised good to me, His word my hope secures: He will my shield and portion be, As long as life endures.
Yea, when this heart and flesh shall fail, And mortal life shall cease: I shall possess, within the vail, A life of joy and peace.
The earth shall soon dissolve like snow, The sun forbear to shine: But God who called me here below, Will be forever mine.
- John Newton -
When we've been there ten thousand years, Bright shining as the sun, We've no less days to sing God's praise, Than when we first begun.
