1 The graces of the Christian life
To faith must be added be,
Lest we forget, amid the strife,
We were from sin set free.

2 Our calling and election sure,
Upon these works depend,
To form a life that will endure,
In worlds that never end.

3 Virtue and knowledge of the Lord,
Temperance and patience, too,
With godliness we keep the Word,
Good will to brethren due.

4 The crowning grace of all the seven,
The pure and peaceful love,
The last on earth, though first n Heav’n,
Is found below, above.

5 Abundant entrance we’ll receive,
When free from care and strife,
On earth our sins and sorrows leave,
And gain eternal life.
