Representative Text

1 How needful, strictly to inquire
And ask our hearts each day,
“Doth Jesus’ love me still inspire,
My thoughts and actions sway?
Am I a branch in Christ, the Vine?
Am I His own, and is He mine?
Do I by faith unto Him cleave,
And to His honor live?”

2 The Spirit’s witness, full and clear,
Will state the real case,
And either draw a contrite tear
Or thanks unfeigned raise;
Hence will the consequence ensue,
That the full purpose we renew,
To run in faith the appointed race,
Supported by His grace.
