Representative Text

1 For us the dear Redeemer died;
Why are we then ashamed?
We stand for ever justified,
And cannot be condemned.

2 Though we believe not, he is true;
The work is in his hand;
His gracious purpose he will do.
And all his word shall stand.

3 If once the love of Christ we feel
Upon our hearts impressed,
The mark of that celestial seal
Can never be erased.

4 The Lord will scourge us if we stray,
And wound us with distress;
But he will never take away
His covenant of peace.

5 The peace which Jesus’ blood secures,
And fixes in our hearts,
To all eternity endures,
Nor finally departs.
