Representative Text

1 Infinite Love! what precious stores
Thy mercy has prepared for us!
The costliest gems, the richest ores,
Could never have endowed us thus.

2 But thy soft hand, O gracious Lord,
Can draw from suffering souls the sting;
And thy rich bounty to our board
Can bread for hungering sinners bring.

3 How rich the grace! the gift how free!
'Tis only "ask," it shall be given;
"Tis only "knock," and thou shalt see
The opening door that leads to heaven.

4 O then arise, and take the good,
So full and freely proffered thee,
Remembering that it cost the blood
Of Him who died on Calvary.
