1 Should we our members yield?
To act unrighteousness;
Who have the will of God reveal'd,
And his dear name profess.

2 Yet once it was our case,
We were to sine enslav'd--
But by a wond'rous act of grace:
Renew'd again and sav'd.

3 We dare not yield to sin,
Tho' grace to us abounds--
Lest we enslave ourselves again,
And mock the Saviours wounds.

4 How much could we be blam'd,
To nourish such a root?
Whose growth would make us feel ashamed
When once it shews it fruit.

5 Rewards of sin is death,
Of body and of soul;
But every true believer hath,
That which can make him whole.

6 Life is the gift of God,
For Jesus sake 'tis giv'n.
The shedding of the Saviour's blood,
Will make them heirs of heav'n.
