Christ My Song - 1444

Who shall condemn the Lord's elect?
(Thomas Kelly/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Who shall condemn the Lord's elect?

"Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect."
(Romans 8,33)

1. Who shall condemn the Lord's elect?
  Or what their safety shall affect?
No matter who in judgment sits
  on those whom God himself acquits.

2. His saints find favour in his eyes,
  'tis God himself that justifies;
he cancels every charge with blood,
  his people they, himself their God.

3. Who shall condemn? 'tis Christ that died,
  'tis Christ our Lord was crucified;
yea, rather, who is ris'n again,
  his work, his off'ring not in vain:

4. who even sits at God's right hand,
  while wond'ring angels round him stand;
who maketh intercession there,
  for all his ransomed people here.

5. What then shall part us from his love?
  Shall aught below, or aught above?
Nay, since the Saviour died and rose,
  his saints shall vanquish all their foes.

Thomas Kelly, Hymns on various passages of Scripture, ca. 1853, Hymn 691.
