Those the Father gave to His Son by Derek Melton

Those the Father gave to his Son
In love before time began
A chosen race without merit
All part of God’s ancient plan

Pitiful rebels not righteous saints
Condescended they to atone
Bearing their sin claiming their curse
Propitiating wrath all alone

A suffering Savior a purchase prize
A church betrothed to come
Omnipotent work effectual call
From tribes and nations some

Great High Priest ascended-seated
Interceding his elect secure
The gospel declared his Spirit convicting
Ensuring his bride will be pure

A midnight cry awaking bride
Lamps trimmed with extra oil
Her lover’s arms hold her secure
Finds rest from her earthen toil

Unseen ages unfold oh blissful day
The bride and the Groom satisfied
A consummation an audience vast
The Father’s decrees ratified.
