Salvation by Grace.
Harmonious to my ear;
And all the earth shall hear. 2. Grace first contriv'd a way
• To save rebellious man, And all the steps that grace display;
Which drew the wondrous plan. 3 Grace taught my wand'ring feet
• To tread the heav'nly road, And new supplies each hour I meet,
While pressing on to God.
Through everlasting days;
And well deserves the praise.
Justification by Faith. 1 How shall we stand, when CHRIST appears? ;
How come before our LORD?
Avert the threat’ning sword ?
Of lambs or bullocks spilt ?
And think to hide their guilt?
3 Ah no; the LAMB of God alone,
The LAMB, whom God has sent,
And His just wrath prevent.
On Thee our hopes we place: Say to our troubled spirits, Live;
And save us by Thy grace.
Thee only would I know;
And wash me white as snow.
Purge my iniquity :
I have no part with Thee.
Answer, if mine Thou art! Whisper within, Thou Love divine,
And cheer my drooping heart. 4 Tell me again my peace is made,
And bid the sinner live :
My FATHER must forgive.
His wounds are open'd wide : For me the Blood of Sprinkling pleads,
And speaks me justified.
6 My humbled soul, when thou art near,
In dust and ashes lies :
Or meet Thy purer eyes?
7 I loathe myself when God I see,
And into nothing fall; * Content if Thou exalted be,
And Christ be. All in All.
1 NOT all the outward forms on earth,
Nor rites that God has given,
Can raise a soul to heav'n.
2 The sov'reign will of God alone
Creates us heirs of grace; -
A new peculiar race.
3 The SPIRIT, like some heav'nly wind,
Blows on the sons of flesh,
And forms the man afresh.
4. Our quicken'd souls awake, and rise a
From the long sleep of death; . . On heav'nly things we fix our eyes,
And praise employs our breath.. . ...
1 COME, FATHER, Son, and HOLY GHOST,
One God in Persons THREE,
By all mankind and me.
2 Thy favour, and Thy nature too,
To me, to all restore;
And keep us evermore.
Display Thy beams divine,
Upon my heart to shine...
Thy grace and mercy prove;
The God of pard’ning love. .. 5 Lift up Thy countenance serene,
And let Thy happy child
The GODHEAD reconcil'd! .
6 That all-comprising peace bestów
On me, through grace forgiv'n ; The joys of holiness below,
And then the joys of beay'n! .
1 STRAIT is the way, the door is strait
That leads to joys on high; "Tis but a few that find the gate,
While crowds mistake, and die.
2 Beloved self must be denied,
The mind and will renew'd,
And vain desires subdued.
Where it prevails and rules ;
Lest they destroy our souls.
(That vile idolatry:). And ev'ry member, ev'ry sense,
In sweet subjection lie. 5 The tongue, that most unruly pow'r,
Requires a strong restraint; . We must be watchful ev'ry hour,
And pray, but never faint.
Fulfil a task so hard?
And give the free reward.
