Free Will and Final Wisdom

"I will praise Thee, O LORD, among the people: and I will sing praises unto Thee among the nations.  For Thy mercy is great above the heavens: and Thy truth reacheth unto the clouds" (Psalm 108:3,4).  "Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end" (Proverbs 19:20).  "Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons… Jesus Christ… is Lord of all… To Him give all the prophets witness, that through His name whosoever believeth in Him shall receive remission of sins" (Acts 10:34,36,43). 

How wonderful it is to know
The great extent of God's salvation
As He commands us now to go
And preach His Word to every nation! 

The Lord has given us His Word
With truth we must not compromise
So that His counsel may be heard
And heeded when a heart is wise.

The Gospel is for ALL, not some;
Salvation has no other path,
Yet "whosoever will" may come
To Christ, and thereby flee from wrath. 

O Lord, the Author of free will
And final wisdom that You give,
Your mercy is extended still
To all who choose to look and live.
