God chose a people for his name

The Bible account is there

In a promise to His friend Abraham

They’d be his favored future seed

And number the beach’s sands


God’s chosen became the nation Israel

They prospered under His care

Were rescued from slaving for Pharoah

Were led by His prophets and power

But didn’t cherish His favor


God chose to be patient with them

Sent a son to reset and reconcile

As he wanted them back to his side

But they used the laws of Rome

To impale their own Messiah


God chose that very son as King

Whose life course shines like a beacon

Attracts hearts like a lightning rod

Saving those fleeing the darkness

All those who’ve CHOSEN God
