The divine dispensing

The divine dispensing starts with the Father.
He selected us ’ere the world began.
Predestinated to be His sons
Through His rich life dispensing.
The Son accomplished the Father’s purpose
By His redemption of fallen man
Through His own blood and according to
The riches of God’s grace.
The Spirit’s sealing, the application
It works within us to permeate
And transform us with God’s element
Unto our full redemption.
The Spirit’s pledging is just a foretaste
Of our divine inheritance.
It guarantees the full taste of God
As our eternal portion.
We thank You, Father, Son, and Spirit
For all the blessings we have received.
We’ve given nothing, yet You give all.
How worthy of our praise!

I really love this hymn because it opens up the view of all the spiritual blessings in the heavenlies in Christ in Ephesians 1:3-14. It shows how these blessings are all of the Triune God—the Father's choosing and predestinating, the Son's redeeming and the Spirit's sealing and pledging. All these spiritual and heavenly blessings are related to God's divine dispensing to make us God's sons for His eternal glory. What awesome blessings!
