a Trinitarian adoption

Looking through the halls of time,
The Father chose a fallen race
In his good pleasure, redeeming sons
To show the glory of His Grace
Adopted children, thy voices raise,
Praise the Father’s choosing grace.
~
Eternal Christ, comes to redeem,
His state of glory willing to leave,
Taking shame, ours by birthright,
That sonship we might now receive
Sing now for joy, thou once a thrall,
Thy Elder Brother paid for all.
~
Led by the Holy comforter,
Not left as orphans here below,
In us He’ll raise the Abba Cry,
Joint-heirs with Christ, this love He shows
Sons of God, raise joyous cry,
In Christ, the Spirit draws us nigh.
~
Beholding now! Turn eyes to see
The glory of the Godhead’s love,
Lavished upon us, rebels once,
Now we come to Him as sons
All laud to the glory of His grace,
Father, Son, Spirit, give endless praise.

    The second verse is my favorite..Good job, bro! Reminds me of the excerpt from Flavel about the Father and the Son talking of the cross and salvation–Paul Washer read it in one of his sermons.

  • Quote of the Day

    “We love the old saints, missionaries, martyrs, and reformers. Our Luthers, Bunyans, Wesleys and Asburys, etc... We will write their biographies, reverence their memories, frame their epitaphs, and build their monuments. We will do anything except imitate them. We cherish the last drop of their blood, but watch carefully over the first drop of our own.”
    - A. W. Tozer
