1 Faith in Jesus can repel
The darts of sin and death;
Faith gives victory over hell;
But who can give us faith?
Hope in Christ the soul revives,
Supports the spirits when they droop;
Hope celestial comfort gives;
But who can give us hope?

2 Love to Jesus Christ and his,
Fixes the heart above;
Love gives everlasting bliss;
But who can give us love?
To believe’s the gift of God;
Well-grounded hope he sends from heaven,
Love’s the earnest of his blood,
To all his children given.

3 Jesus, from thy boundless store,
Thy treasuries of grace,
On thy feeble followers pour
Thy righteousness and peace.
Of thy righteousness alone
Continual mention we will make;
We have nothing of our own;
But soul and all’s at stake.
