Representative Text

1 Lamb of God, we fall before you,
Humbly trusting in your cross.
Our great joy is to adore you;
All things else are only dross.

2 Jesus is the perfect Savior,
Only source of all that's good;
Ev'ry grace and ev'ry favor
Come to us through Jesus' blood.

3 Jesus gives us true repentance
By his Spirit sent from heav'n,
Whispers this assuring sentence,
"All your sins are now forgiv'n."

4 Faith he grants us to believe it,
Grateful hearts his love to prize;
Want we wisdom? He must give it,
Hearing ears and seeing eyes.

5 Jesus gives us pure affections,
Wills to do what he requires,
Makes us follow his directions,
And what he commands, inspires.

6 All our prayers and all our praises,
Rightly offered in his name --
He that asks for them is Jesus;
He that answers is the same.
