You Made Us Your Own

See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called the children of God; and so we are [!].
1 John 3:1
I have a hard time believing that the apostle John ended that sentence with a period and not an exclamation point.

We learned this song at church for the first time last Sunday. We sang it for only the second time yesterday. I'm hooked. I love this song. I haven't been able to stop singing it since yesterday. May our hearts never stop singing and being amazed by this reality: We're God's children now. He's made us His own.

You Made Us Your Own - Sovereign Grace Music

We were ruined in our sin,
We were guilty, and undone,
When Your love reached down with sovereign hands,
And beckoned us to come.

You sought out the wanderers,
Made the prodigals come home,
With a lavish feast You welcomed us
For You made us Your own.

You have loved us like You loved Your Son.
We are heirs with Christ, bought by His blood.
Oh, how great the love that we've been shown.
We're Your children now, You made us Your own.

We are strangers to this world,
But no strangers to Your throne
We draw near You now with confidence
For all our fears are gone.

And when Christ, our King returns,
We'll meet saints we've never known.
And forever we will be amazed
That You made us Your own.
