Representative Text

1 THE Gospel shows the Father's grace,
Who sent His Son to save our race;
Proclaims how Jesus lived and died
That we might thus be justified.

2 It sets the Lamb before our eyes
Who made th'atoning sacrifice,
And calls the souls with guilt oppressed
To come and find eternal rest.

3 It brings the Savior's righteousness
Our souls to robe in royal dress;
From all our guilt it brings release,
And gives the troubled conscience peace.

4 It is the power of God to save
From sin and Satan and the grave;
It works the faith which firmly clings
To all the treasures which it brings.

5 It bears to all the tidings glad,
And bids their hearts no more be sad:
The heavy-laden soul it cheers,
And banishes their guilty fears.

6 May we in faith its tidings learn,
Nor thanklessly its blessings spurn;
May we in faith its truth confess,
And praise the Lord our righteousness.
