When you were still a slave and doomed to death,
The Savior bought you with His very life.
He chose you for His own, your pulse and breath,
Ordained to follow Him through sweat and strife.
When you were Spirit-filled and born anew,
He showed you how to love and live and pray,
Then sent you out to search the whole world through
To find the lost before they slip away.
The souls that come to Him must be matured
To carry on the work He’ll have them do.
Whatever you’re in need of rest assured,
Just ask the Father, He will see you through.
Christ chose you, He ordained you, You are His,
A slave to Jesus now, and all He is.
Ye have not chosen me,
but I have chosen you,
and ordained you,
that ye should go and bring forth fruit,
and that your fruit should remain:
that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name,
he may give it you.
John 15:16 KJV
