GRACE, how exceeding sweet to those
'Tis Grace, free Grace, most sweetly calls,
Directly come, who will;
Poor helpless Sinners still.—Luke i5. 2.
We thirst, O Lord ; give us, this Day,
To taste more of this Grace; More of that Stream which from the Rock
Flow'd thro' the Wilderness.—i Cor. i0. 4.
Free Grace alone doth seed our Souls,
It keeps us inly poor;
May rule for evermore!
