35. The Gospel Shows The Father's Grace

1 The Gospel shows the Father's grace,
Who sent His Son to save our race:
Proclaims how Jesus lived and died,
That man might thus be justified.

2 It sets the Lamb before our eyes,
Who made th'atoning sacrifice,
And calls the souls with guilt oppressed
To come and find eternal rest.

3 It brings the Savior's righteousness
Our souls to robe in royal dress;
From all our guilt it brings release
And gives the troubled conscience peace.

4 It is the pow'r of God to save
From sin and Satan and the grave;
It works the faith which firmly clings
To all the treasures which it brings.

5 It bears to all the tidings glad
And bids their hearts no more be sad;
The heavy laden soul it cheers
And banishes their guilty fears.

6 May we in faith its tidings learn,
Nor thanklessly its blessings spurn;
May we in faith its truth confess
And praise the Lord our Righteousness.
