*Pastor’s Note: A.B. Simpson was a very well respected Canadian preacher, theologian and author who lived from December 15, 1843 to October 29, 1919. My prayer is that you will be blessed and inspired by his poetry as much as I am.


Great is the grace that the Saviour hath brought us
    By his atonement so glorious and free,—
We are accepted in the Belovèd;
    We are belovèd even as He.

Sinful and perishing, wretched and ruined,
    Helpless and hopeless, oh, how can it be
We are accepted in the Belovèd?
    We are belovèd even as He?

Mercy has covered our sin and transgression;
    Only the merits of Christ can it see,
For we’re accepted in the Belovèd;
    We are belovèd even as He.

Now as His children, beloved and adopted,
    All of His fulness so glorious and free,
We may with boldness claim through His merits,
    For we’re accepted even as He.

Perishing sinner, oh, come to the Saviour;
    Mercy and welcome are waiting for thee.
God will accept thee in the Belovèd,
    Save thee and love thee even as He.
