    A hymn written by Joseph Irons in Zion's Hymns. (in long meter)

    1. Jehovah's love, first chose His saints;
    Love listens now to their complaints;
    Love paid their debt incurr'd by sin;
    Love breaks their hearts, and enters in.

    2. Thus Father, Son, and holy Dove,
    The Three in One, a God of love,
    Engag'd in cov'nant for our sake:
    This three-fold cord can never break.

    3. 'Tis held in God our Saviour's hand:
    Suspended by His own command,
    It reaches to the gates of hell,
    And rescues souls, with Him to dwell.

    4. Nor sin, nor Satan can devour,
    The soul that feels its vital power;
    It will not, cannot lose its hold:
    Eternal joys it will unfold.
