    Here is an old hymn by John Kent that some of you might enjoy. It has some beautiful imagery. Perhaps it will be a little too "Calvinistic" for some, but I hope it will be a blessing to somebody.

    There is a period known to God
    When all his sheep redeemed by blood;
    Shall leave the hateful ways of sin
    Trun to the fold, and enter in.

    At peace with hell, with God at war
    In sin's dark maze they wander far;
    Indulge their lusts and still go on
    As far from God as sheep can run.

    But see how heav'n's indulgent care
    Attends their wand'rings here and there;
    Still near at hand, where'er they stray
    With piercing thorns to hedge their way.

    Glory to God--they ne'er shall rove
    Beyond the limits of his love;
    Fenced with Jehovah's shalls and wills
    Firm as the everlasting hills.

    Th' appointed time rolls on apace
    Not to promise, but call by grace;
    To change the heart, renew the will
    And turn their feet to Zion's hill.

    This can be found on Jeff Weaver's Sovereign Grace Hymns and Grace Truth Ministries.
