Whate’er my God ordains is right: Holy His will abideth;
I will be still whate’er He doth, And follow where He guideth:
He is my God; Though dark my road,
He holds me that I shall not fall;
Wherefore to Him I leave it all.
A. Effectual calling is the work of God’s Spirit, whereby, convincing us of our sin and misery, enlightening our minds in the knowledge of Christ, and renewing our wills, he doth persuade and enable us to embrace Jesus Christ, freely offered to us in the gospel.
