Such Love

Home » Original Songs » Updated Hymns


Another song about the blessed doctrine of election, "Such Love" captures the wonder and love that God's eternal, sovereign choice instills in His people. How overwhelming the truth that God's love is so great that He covered millions of sins - ruthless rebellion against His law and authority, in Christ's righteousness. Regarding election, this song expresses the fact that God chose us before creation. He loved us with an everlasting love from before time began, purchasing the Church as a people for His own possession. How can we respond except by singing with the author, "Such everlasting love demands and everlasting song from me."


'Twas with an everlasting love that God His own elect embraced,
Before He made the worlds above, or earth in her position placed.

Such love! How high its glories swell, how great, immutable, and free!
Millions of sins, deserving of hell, were all swallowed up, no more to be!

Long before sun's first brilliant ray illumined the darkness from above,
Saints in His arms of purpose lay, loved with an everlasting love.

Then, in His wonderful decrees, Christ and His church appeared as one;
Her sin, by imputation, His, while she in spotless splendor shone.

Believing, here my comfort stands, salvation undeserved and free!
Such everlasting love demands an everlasting song from me.

Words by John Kent (1766-1843). Music by David L. Ward.
