LIV. Should we receive that grace in vain

1 Should we receive that grace in vain,
That precious gift of God;
And serve our former lusts again,
And slight the Saviours blood.

2 Should we refuse to watch and pray,
And loose what we have gain'd?
That would be casting Christ away,
And all his love disdain'd.

3 The Lord was pleas'd our pray'rs to hear
In the accepted hour:
Now is the time to persevere,
And use the Saviour's pow'r.

4 As faithful servants of the Lord,
Ourselves we must approve--
Attend unto his precious word,
With pure unfeigned Love.

5 To bear assaults on ev'ry hand,
And yet now be dismay'd;
Confirm'd in Christ by faith to stand,
Supported by his aid.
