1 Blest be the grace which did proclaim,
O Lord of hosts, thy holy name;
"The Lord, the gracious Lord,
"Long-suffering, merciful and kind;
"The God who always bears in mind
"His everlasting word.

2 "Plenteous he is in truth and grace;
"He wills that all our sinful race
"Should turn, repent, and live;
"His pardoning grace for all is free,
"Transgression, sin, iniquity,
"He freely doth forgive."

3 O then that every sinful soul,
By faith and penitence made whole,
May know their sins forgiven;
The proffer'd benefits embrace,
The plenitude of gospel grace,
The antepast of heaven!

4 Be this our one great business here,
With serious industry and care
Our future bills to ensure;
Thine utmost counsel to fulfil,
And suffer all thy righteous will,
And to the end endure.
