2 Thessalonians 2:13–14

Stand Firm

13 But we ought always to give thanks to God for you, brothers beloved by the Lord, because God chose you as the firstfruits1 to be saved, through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth. 14 To this he called you through our gospel, so that you may obtain the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

1. Blessed are the sons of God, 
They are bought with Christ’s own blood; 
They are ransomed from the grave, 
Life eternal they shall have: 
With them numbered may we be 
Here and in eternity! 

2. They are justified by grace, 
They enjoy the Savior’s peace; 
All their sins are washed away, 
They shall stand in God’s great Day: 
With them numbered may we be 
Here and in eternity!
