we could no more restrain The God

than clay hold back its potter

He will love whom He will love

we but rejoice within His care

to stand upon His word is life

it shields us not from His truth

restricts not who would rejoice with us

but protects us from deceitful lies

the love of which will lead to death

 

it is not we of faith keeping men from God

but you, for whom is not enough to say

“All who call on the name of the Lord

Will Be Saved!”

but add “Come, and stay, as you are”

you would have a saviour more pleasant

asking not repentance nor sacrificial faith

having no power at all to save

 

that is not God you show the world

no salvation have you to offer

your fathers lies fly from your lips

obscuring truth with utter hate

all who trust your words will die
