Before the Foundation

by Jason Kirk Bartley

According as He hath chosen us in Him
Before the foundation of the world that we should be Holy and without blame Before Him in love (Ephesians 1:4, KJV).
Before the Foundation,  you foresaw us saved in your holy nation.
Before your plan,
we were already thought of how you wanted to save man.
Before the foundation, 
You lifted your voice and extended your nail-scarred hand.
Before the Foundation of the world Satan had been defeated,
but your Holy plan was already completed.
How we owe you more than we can repay,
We give you our hearts and follow your way.
Before the Foundation,
you could already see,
the millions of men and women who’d come receive your victory.
