    One door and only one, but it's sides are two. I'm on the inside, on which side are you?

    Can you think of others?

    I found a few in the Baptist Hymnal 1991)

    P. 542 In Loving Kindness, Jesus Came
    v.2 "He called me long before I heard, before my sinful heart was stirred....)
    (Words: Daniel W. Whittle Music: Jmes McGranahan; Tune El Nathan)

    P. 337 I Know Whom I Have Believed
    v.2 "I know not how this saving faith to me he did impart..."
    v.3 "I know not how the Spirit moves, convincing men of sin,
    Revealing Jesus through the word, creating faith in Him..."
    (Words and Music: Charles H. Gabriel; Tune: He Lifted Me)

    P 289 My Lord, I Did Not Choose You
    v.1 "My Lord, I did not choose you, for that could never be,
    My heart would still refuse You, had You not chosen me,
    You took the sin that stained me, You cleansed me, made me new,
    Of old you have ordained me, that I should live in You

    v.2 "Unless Your grace had called me And taught my op'ning mind,
    The world would have enthralled me to heav'nlyy glories bind.
    My heart knows none about You; For Your rich grace I thirst.
    I know that if I love You, You must have loved me first."

    (Words: Joshua Condor; Music: Anonymous Tune: Whitfield)

    I was going to mention the one by Josiah Conder "Tis Not that i Did Choose Thee." That is one of my favorites. Most of Watts and Newtons were Calvinistic.

    I don't know how many of these will be known in the Staes:

    "Stand up and bless the Lord, ye people of His choice" (James Montgomery)

    "'Tis not that I did choose Thee, for Lord, that could not be; This heart would still refuse Thee, hadst Thou not chosen me." (Josiah Conder)

    "Great is the gospel of our Glorious God, where mercy met the anger of God's rod, A penalty was paid and pardon bought, and sinners lost at last to Him were brought." (Vernon Higham)

    "O how the grace of God amazes me!
    It loosed me from my bonds, and set me free!
    What made it happen so? 'Twas His will, this much I know
    Set me, as now I show, at liberty!" (E. T. Sibomana)

    "How vast the benefits divine" of which verse 2 goes:

    "It's not for works that we have done
    Or shall hereafter do,
    But He, of His abounding love
    Salvation does bestow." (Augustus Toplady)

    "Sovereign grace o'er sin abounding" (John Kent)

    "Lord I was blind, I could not see
    In Thy marred visage any grace;
    But now the beauty of Thy face
    In radiant vision dawns on me." (William T. Matson)

    "Not what my hands have done
    Can save my guilty soul" (Horatius Bonar)

    "I sought the Lord and afterward I knew
    He moved my soul to seek Him, seeking me,
    It was not I that found, O Saviour true,
    No, I was found by Thee." (The Pilgrim Hymnal)

    "By grace I'm saved, grace free and boundless" (Christian L. Scheidt)

    "God commends His love, greater could not be,
    While I was a sinner, Jesus died for me." (George Goodman)

    "Far beyond all comprehension
    Is Jehovah's covenant love" (Richard Lee)

    "The gospel of Thy grace
    My stubborn heart has won." (Arthur T. Pierson)
