Representative Text

1 Rise from thy stupor, heart so uneasy;
Why so completely forget what thou hast?
Christ is forever
Thy loving Saviour,
He's still the same as He was in the past.

2 Pause and consider, earnestly ponder
What thou possessest in Him, not in thee;
Righteous and holy,
Perfect most truly,
Art thou in Christ, who from sin sets us free.

3 Though thou at times can not feel it, nor see it,
Though so unholy and sinful within,
Jesus hath bought thee,
And mercy brought thee,
And still upholds thee, and save thee from sin.

4 Right in the midst of sin's daily affliction,
Justification eternal thou hast.
That thou are holy
Thou ow'st Him solely,
Him upon whom all thy burdens were cast.

5 God is in Christ now thy Friend and thy Father:
Jesus thy Brother on Calvary died;
And by His merit
Has sent His Spirit,
To be thy Strength, and thy Comfort, and Guide.
