8 Faith! - 'tis a precious grace,
Where'er it is bestow;d!
It boasts of a celestial birth,
And is the gift of God!

9 Jesus it owns a King,
An all-atoning Priest,
It claims no merit of its own,
But finds it all in Christ.

10 To him it leads the soul,
When fill'd with deep distress;
Appropriates his precious blood,
And trusts his righteousness.

11 Since 'tis thy work alone,
And that divinely free;
Lord, send the spirit of thy Son
To work this faith in me.
