“And such were some of you.” 1 Cor. 6. 11; 12. 2

J. Kent   C.M.

Ye souls redeemed by Jesus’ blood,
Salvation’s theme pursue;
Exalt the sovereign grace of God,
For “such were some of you!”

From head to foot defiled by sin,
Deep in rebellion too;
This awful state mankind are in,
“And such were some of you!”

Whilst they are sinners dead to God,
Ye highly favoured few
Are washed from sin by Jesus’ blood;
For “such were some of you!”

As ye are chosen from the rest,
To grace the praise is due;
Be sovereign love for ever blest,
For “such were some of you!”
