Generous to the Gentiles

"The LORD also will be a Refuge… and they that know Thy name will put their trust in Thee: for Thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them that seek Thee" (Psalm 9:9,10).  "Every Word of God is pure: He is a Shield unto them that put their trust in Him" (Proverbs 30:5).  "The Gentiles shall come unto Thee from the ends of the earth" (Jeremiah 16:19).  "Ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given... that the Gentiles should be fellow heirs, and of the same body, and partakers of His promise in Christ by the Gospel" (Ephesians 3:2,6).

We see the generosity
Of God to all who seek His face. 
Both Jew and Gentile now may flee
Into the refuge of His grace. 

For every word of God is pure,
And every promise is revealed
That we may trust forevermore
The Lord, who is to us a Shield. 

To all the people of the earth,
The promise of our Lord declares
That we may have a second birth
By grace which makes us fellow heirs. 

O Lord, You have been generous
To Gentiles and to Jews as well! 
You gave Your life to ransom us
And save us from eternal hell.
