You Are Chosen Of The Lord


You are chosen of the Lord a work to do,
And a special service he requires of you;
Great or small, it matters not, if you are true,-
Work out your own salvation.

Refrain:
Whatsoever you may find to do,
Do it for the sake of him who died for you;
To your Lord be faithful, to your soul be true,-
Work out your own salvation.

With a prayer to guide you, go in love today,
Lead some wand’rer back into the narrow way;
Search the mountain for the careless gone astray,-
Work out your own salvation. [Refrain]

Let your life be earnest, and your heart sincere;
Make your daily purpose unto others clear;
To your God be loyal, lab’ring in his fear,-
Work out your own salvation. [Refrain]
