The Lord Never Loses a Soul
The Lord never loses a soul that He saves,
The Name on His heart He forever engraves;
No power in heaven, no union on earth
Can change the position bestowed by new birth.
No plan or deception can pluck from God’s hand
The children He loves though they can’t understand –
His working is faithful, His purpose won’t fail,
He’ll finish His work so that grace might prevail.
Though some children falter, the Father is near
To lovingly guide them, to chasten or cheer;
But those who reject Him were never for real
However convincing their promising zeal.
In those who’ve forsaken their sin and believed
In Jesus alone and new life have received,
The Spirit is working and heaven is sure –
Their faith through God’s mercy will grow and endure.
