He Himself who chose us out in Jesus

SONG: The Creator of this earth has a personal interest in you!

Christian song about God’s love

You were called and chosen by God, who has a burning desire that it goes well for you! Listen to this moving Christian song about God’s love – the Creator of this earth has a personal interest in you, and wants to transform you and give you peace, joy and blessing when you put your complete trust in Him! This clip is from a Brunstad Christian Church online service in March 2020.

Lyrics: He Himself who chose us out in Jesus

He Himself who chose us out in Jesus,
Even long before the world was there,
In the fullness of the time He called us
With a father’s tender, loving care.
Day and night His heart for us is burning,
With a deep desire to make us whole.
If you place your life into His keeping,
He will save you: spirit, body, soul.

He who guides the course of earth and heaven
And who holds the oceans in His hand—
He is yearning to possess our spirit,
And for us He has a glorious plan.
When you turn your back on worldly folly,
You’ll show forth His glory and His praise.
If you place your life into His keeping,
He’ll transform and guide you all your days.

“Prove Me now,” we hear Him gently calling;
Blest are they who take Him at His Word.
Though all others leave you or neglect you,
Yet by Him each sigh will still be heard.
In the heart that feels its need and sorrow,
He creates with Words so wonderful.
If you place your life into His keeping,
He will open heaven o’er your soul.

’Tis no wonder that the soul rests calmly;
Sweet is rest beyond both death and grave.
All my days are resting in His keeping;
From all worry, by His grace, I’m saved.
When you put your confidence in Jesus,
Like a river, deep and wide, your peace.
If you place your life into His keeping,
You’ll be filled with joy that ne’er will cease.
