Title: You Were Chosen
Meter: 10 9 10 9
Scripture: Jeremiah 1:4-5

1.
Oh, you were chosen before you were born
For the mission you would have on earth.
Your spirit was given the gifts it needs
Exceeding all other earthly worth.

Some He sent here to be prophets and kings
But many He sent here to be saints.
For to move His great work on Earth forward
Resolved, and without word of complaint.

2.
Oh, you were chosen before you were born
And made holy for what you would do.
Sanctified to be made part of God’s plan.
By serving your entire life though.

Some He sent here to be prophets and kings,
But many He sent here to be saints.
For to move His great work on Earth forward
Resolved, and without word of complaint.

3.
Oh, you were chosen before you were born
For God knows your weaknesses and strengths.
He blessed you with talents for you to use.
And will go with you to any lengths.

Some He sent here to be prophets and kings,
But many He sent here to be saints.
For to move His great work on Earth forward
Resolved, and without word of complaint.
