Bible Reference: Summer Conference Hymn

FAR before time, beyond creation's dawn,
Before the sun and moon and stars were born,
Salvation's way for sinners lost, undone
Was counselled forth by God the Three in One.

A store of grace unlimited was laid
In Jesus Christ before the seas were made;
And precious cov'nant mercies did abound
In floods of blessing all the world around.

The trumpet sounds the note of glad release
On Calvary, by God's atoning grace:
Glad hymns of praise in every tongue shall be
For Jesu's blood and death that set us free.

Peter Jones, 1775-1845; tr. by Edmund Tudor Owen, 1935 -
