[Continuing the hymn-for-Sundays series]
What a wonderful plan of God for me
that he’d draw me for his praise –
to be pardoned, holy, his love proclaim,
child of God through endless days.
Praise his glory,
praise his glorious grace,
praise his great and glorious grace.
For it cost him, cost him,
cost so much to him,
to redeem and purchase me.
What a wonderful grace of Christ to say
he would come and shed his blood.
And he brought me in from the power of sin,
gave me insight to his Word.
And how wonderful that he seals his own –
his deposit, guarantee –
Spirit lives within, keeps us for our King,
for that blessed eternity.
(on Ephesians1:3–14 in the New Testament)
