Representative Text

1 Jesus is the chiefest good;

Cried, “Inflict it all on me.”]

3 Jesus gives us life and peace,
Faith, and love, and holiness;
Every blessing, great or small,
Jesus freely gives us all.

4 Jesus, therefore, let us own:
Jesus we’ll exalt alone;
Jesus has our sins forgiven,
And will take us safe to heaven.
