Sanctification Sought

Representative Text

1 Now may the God of peace and love,
Who from the impris'ning grave
Restored the Shepherd of the sheep,
Omnipotent to save.

2 Through the rich merits of that blood,
Which He on Calv'ry spilt,
To make the eternal cov'nant sure,
On which our hopes are built.

3 Perfect our souls in every grace,
To accomplish all His will;
And all that's pleasing in His sight,
Inspire us to fulfil.

4 For the great Mediator's sake
We every blessing pray;
With glory let His name be crown'd,
Through heaven's eternal day.

Amen.
