2 The rush of num'rous years bears down
When, dust, he turns to dust again? 3 One only gift can justify
The boasting soul that knows his God;
4 The Lord my righteousness I praise,
6th P. M. 6 lines 7s.
The covenant of grace signed and sealed.
JESUS Christ, who stands between
Life his healing blood imparts,
The realizing light of faith.
In us the work of faith fulfil.
3 By faith we know thee strong to save: (Save us, a present Saviour thou:) Whate'er we hope, by faith we have; Future, and past, subsisting now.
4 To him that in thy Name believes,
6 Faith lends its realizing light;
Salvation only by grace through faith.
We only can be saved by grace;
2 Save us by grace, through faith alone,— A faith thou must thyself impart;
A faith that would by works be shown,
3 A faith that doth the mountains move, A faith that shows our sins forgiven, A faith that sweetly works by love,
And ascertains our claim to heaven.
4 This is the faith we humbly seek,
The faith in thy all-cleansing blood; That faith which doth for sinners speak, O let it speak us up to God!
1st P. M. 6 lines 8s.
The soul's anchor.
I have found the ground wherein Sure my soul's anchor may remain; The wounds of Jesus for my sin,
Before the world's foundation slain; Whose mercy shall unshaken stay, When heaven and earth are fled away. 2 Father, thine everlasting grace
Our scanty thought surpasses far:
My sins are swallow'd up in thee;
Nor spot of guilt remains on me: While Jesus' blood, through earth and skies, Mercy, free, boundless mercy, cries. 4 By faith I plunge me in this sea;
Here is my hope, my joy, my rest; Hither, when hell assails, I flee;
I look into my Saviour's breast: Away, sad doubt and anxious fear! Mercy is all that's written there.
Faith counted for righteousness.
FATHER of Jesus Christ, my Lord,
2 Thou know'st for my offence he died,
That I might live to thee.
3 O God! thy record I believe, In Abrah'm's footsteps tread; And wait, expecting to receive
The Christ, the promised Seed.
4 Faith in thy power thou seest I have, For thou this faith hast wrought; Dead souls thou callest from the grave, And speakest worlds from naught.
5 Eternal life to all mankind
Continued.-Victorious faith. hope, against all human hope,
Thy quick'ning word shall raise me up; Thou wilt thy Spirit give.
2 The thing surpasses all my thought; But faithful is my Lord; Through unbelief I stagger not,
For God hath spoke the word.
3 Faith, mighty faith, the promise sees, And looks to that alone;
Laughs at impossibilities,
And cries, It shall be done!
4 To thee the glory of thy power
I shall in Christ, at that glad hour,
5 Obedient faith, that waits on thee,
Peace in believing.
JESUS, to thee I now can fly,
3 Whate'er in me seems wise, or good,
I wash my garments in the blood
4 Jesus, my strength, my life, my rest,— On thee will I depend,
Till summon'd to the marriage-feast,
This is life eternal.
THE wisdom own'd by all thy sons,
2 'Tis life eternal to believe
My soul shall then adore; And love, and praise, and worship thee, Jehovah, evermore.
