The blest and saving grace of God

The blest and saving grace of God

Published in 1 hymnal

Full Text

1 The bless'd and saving grace of God
Doth plainly now appear;
The Gospel truth's are understood,
By all who wish to hear.

2 Such light and knowledge as we need,
That is on us bestow'd,
That which enlightens us indeed,
To know the living God.

3 This grace that hath salvation brought,
It proves the saving means;
And thereby we are likewise taught,
To mortify our sins.

4 Ungodliness and worldly lust
They must be crucified,
And ev'ry base desire must
By christians be denied.

5 A holy godly life to live,
Must be our care and aim,
And for each blessing we receive
To praise the Saviour's name.

6 This saving grace affords us hope,
And knowledge, love and pow'r,
And we with confidence look up
To Jesus every more.
