Tis Such a Mystery, Father

from Upon This Rock by Ken Puls Music



Ephesians 1:4
Theme: Election and Salvation by Grace
Written at the end of my first year of ministry, expressing my love to God for setting His love on me.


1. 'Tis such a mystery, Father,
Why I was loved of Thee.
A sinner, hell deserving,
Without excuse or plea;
My soul was wholly broken
By Thy truth's heavy load,
For I was found unable
To pay the price I owed.

2. Unsearchable and wondrous
Are Thy ways Sov'reign Lord,
That Thou shouldst die to purchase
What I could ne'er afford.
Thy blood has bought me fully
To live only for Thee.
Thy cross is set before me
That holy I might be.

3. My heart was then Thy conquest;
Thy Spirit sought and won
And placed my own due judgement
On Thy own precious Son.
Thy truth did pierce my darkness,
Exposed my helpless plight;
But Thou found my salvation
To be Thy heart's delight.

4. Amazing thoughts to ponder
When I consider Thee,
Before the world's creation
Didst then consider me.
Elected in Christ Jesus
And called into His love;
His blood has bought my pardon,
'Tis mercy from above.
