LXXXIV. From God above, the God of heav'n

1 From God above, the God of heav'n,
Is ev'ry gift bestow'd;
And all we need from him is giv'n,
Salvation, Life and food.

2 The God our Father, and our Light,
He changes never more;
Whose ways are holy, just and right,
Whose promises are sure.

3 His spirit and the Gospel word
Creates the mind anew;
The Saviour's image is restor'd!
His mercies brought to view.

4 And thus renew'd and born again:
And made the heirs of grace;
Such will for ever more abstain:
From sin and sinners ways.

5 And swift to hear, and slow to speak:
Not subject unto wrath;
Are they who keep their souls awake,
By constant pray'r and faith.

6 Lord may it be my chief concern,
To live as Christians ought;
And may I ever live and learn
The lessons I am taught.
