"WHOSOEVER WILL" - A Poem by A. T. Pierson


WHOSOEVER WILL

THE Gospel of Thy grace
My stubborn heart has won,
For God so loved the world
He gave His only Son,
That

"Whosoever will believe,
Shall everlasting life receive!"
"Shall everlasting life receive!"

The serpent "lifted up"
Could life and healing give,
So Jesus on the cross
Bids me to look and live;
For

"Whosoever will believe,
Shall everlasting life receive!"
"Shall everlasting life receive!"

"The soul that sinneth dies":
My awful doom I heard;
I was forever lost,
But for Thy gracious word
That

"Whosoever will believe,
Shall everlasting life receive!"
"Shall everlasting life receive!"

"Not to condemn the world"
The "Man of sorrows" came;
But that the world might have
Salvation thro' His name;
For

"Whosoever will believe,
Shall everlasting life receive!"
"Shall everlasting life receive!"

"Lord, help my unbelief!"
Give me the peace of faith,
To rest with childlike trust
On what Thy Gospel saith,
That

"Whosoever will believe,
Shall everlasting life receive!"
"Shall everlasting life receive!"
