He gave us grace
4 Jesus, the Lord, appeared at last,
And made his Father's counsels known ; Declared the great transactions past,
And brought immortal blessings down.

1 SALVATION is for ever nigh
The souls that love and trust the Lord; And grace, descending from on high, Fresh hopes of glory shall afford.

He fits us for the courts of heaven.
3 His peace and glory shall abound, Religion dwell on earth again; Its balmy comforts spread around,
In our Redeemer's gentle reign.

Our wandering feet shall stray no more; While his salvation shines abroad, We'll praise his justice, love, and power.

1 ETERNAL life! how sweet the sound, To sinners who in bondage sigh: Publish the bliss the world around; Echo the joys, ye worlds on high. 2 Eternal life! how will it reign,
When, mounting from this breathless clod, The soul, discharged from sin and pain, Ascends to meet its Father, God!
3 Eternal life! O how refined
The joys, the triumphs how divine, When we, in body and in mind,
Shall in the Saviour's image shine!
4 Holy and heavenly is the soul,
Where dwells a hope so bright as this;
