Forever Protected


Before the universe was even created
The devil’s scheming was already frustrated
The sin of the saints was completely negated
For patiently Jesus our Savior awaited
To descend to death and ascend resurrected
Bringing salvation to those God had elected
By faith alone is the poor sinner perfected
And by God’s mighty grace forever protected
