Faith looks to Calv'ry's lofty tree,
This precious faith, which comes from God,
And is much pleas'd with pard'ning blood,
And soars above the skies.
Jesus, subdue my ev'ry foe,
107. Assurance. 8.7.4.
GOD himself is my salvation,
From this sacred well I draw.
From this sacred font proceeding,
All the depth of sin exceeding, Spreading wide, and rising high; Abba Father,
Oh! how sweet the sacred sound.
Thousands in the fold of Jesus
This attainment ne'er could boast; To his name eternal praises, None of these shall e'er be lost; Deeply 'graven
On his hands their names are found.
In this mirror let me view thee,
Shall like sweet perfume arise.
108. Assurance of Faith. 11
My sins, by my Saviour,
While you are exulting
The weakling in Zion,
Our Shepherd and Friend,
109. For a Living Faith.
IN thee, O Christ, is all my hope,
My comfort all in thee;
Me, nor the saints of earth can help,
I feel the load of sin so vast,
On me, thy helpless worm, O Lord,
That I thy nature's hidden sweets May taste, and see, and know.
Triumphant let me live, by love
110. The Triumph of Faith. 11 s. THE God of Salvation, Jehovah by name, Who yesterday, now, and for ever's the same, From guilt and from hell, me a sinner hath sav'd,
And death of its sting hath my Jesus bereav'd. Thy name and thy conquests no longer I fear, Thy might and pale aspect e'en lovely appear; Depriv'd of thy power, with all thy sad train, My Jesus is King, and for ever must reign. His blood is my ransom, the captive is his, Redeem'd from my bondage to enter on bliss, A son through my birth, by adoption an heir, The kingdom of glory with Jesus to share. His Spirit, as witness, as earnest, and seal Of all these rich blessings I inwardly feel; His whispers divine do my freedom proclaim, And open an union with God and the Lamb. An union whose bonds are both stedfast and sure,
In which, I thro' grace can live happy and
The bridegroom's embraces with rapture I know,
And all thro' the blood which from Jesus did
What though I'm so helpless, I know he'll
My weakness with grace, and I on him rely, And I shall be happy the Lord to adore, To praise him now, henceforth, and for ever
111. Faith is the Victory. S. M.
But all this will not do ;
112. Refuge in Christ. 8. 7. dble.
Now thy saving grace impart;
