I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of My hand. My Father, which gave them Me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of My Father’s hand. John 10:28–29

Firm as the earth Thy Gospel stands,
My Lord, my hope, my trust;
If I am found in Jesus’ hands,
My soul can ne’er be lost.
His honor is engaged to save
The meanest of His sheep;
All that His heav’nly Father gave
His hands securely keep.
Nor death nor hell shall e’er remove
His favorites from His breast;
In the dear bosom of His love
They must for ever rest.
