8. 7. 4. Unchangeable Grace.
1 BLESSINGS that attend salvation,
Never alter or decay ;
2 Jesus says, they shall not perish,
None shall pluck them from his hand
And present them
3 God th' eternal Father gave them,
God the Son their ransom paid;
God the Spirit,
He will visit their transgression"
When his mercy they abuse;
He restores them,
Never leave the path of peace!
"Tis a foretaste
Spring of comfort ever new!
7's The Gospel proclaimed. Anon. THROUGH the region of the sky,
Saints, behold the angel fly;
With the gospel's joyful sound,
To the list’ning tribes around. 2 “Sons of men to you I call,
Kindred, people, nations, all!
Serve, and love, and glorify. 3 “In the riches of his grace,
He redeem'd a fallen race;
Wash'd their guilty stains away. 4 “Mercy plenteous, pardon free,
Contrite sinner, waits for thee;
Dying sinner, look and live!”
Through the realms of heathen night
Ransom'd souls from hell and sin.
BEDDO 1 GOD, in the gospel of his Son,
Makes his eternal councils knoi Tis here, his richest mercy shines, And truth is drawn in fairest lines.
2 Here sinners of an humble fame
May taste bis grace, and learn his name ; 'Tis writ in characters of blood, Severely just, immensely good.
3 Here, Jesus in ten thousand ways
His soul-attracting charms displays,
4 Wisdom its dictates here imparts,
To form our minds, to cheer our hearts;
5 Our raging passions it controuls,
And comfort yields to contrite souls;
C. M. The same.
THE kingdom of our God appears,
'Tis publish'd all around, And truly blessed are our ears,
That hear the joyful sound.
2 The kingdom of our God is seen,
Extending o'er the plains;
There our Redeemer reigns,
3 The kingdom of our God is come;
• 'Tis even at our doors! O come, ye wand'ring sinners home,
Nor dy from mercy's stores.
4 The kingdom of our God is near,
May we his voice obey,
Which none can take away.
5 He sends his servants to proclaim
This kingdom in our hearts ;
The blessing he imparts.
'Tis the voice of truth and love; 'Tis the great Jehovah's word, Calling to as from above.
