Representative Text

1 The sinner that truly believes,
And trust in his crucified Lord,
His justification receives,
Redemption in full through his blood;
Though thousands and thousands of foes
Against him in malice unite,
Their rage he through Christ can oppose,
Led forth by the Spirit to fight.

2 Not all the delusions of sin
Shall ever seduce him to death;
He now has the witness within,
United to Jesus by faith,
This faith shall eternally fail,
When Jesus shall fall from his throne:
For hell against both must prevail,
Since Jesus and he are but one.

3 The faith that lays hold on the Lamb
And brings such salvation as this,
Is more than mere notion or name:
The work of God's Spirit it is:
A principle, active and young,
That lives under pressure and load;
That makes out of weakness more strong,
And draws the soul upward to God.

4 It treads on the world, and on hell,
It vanquishes death and despair,
And (what is still stranger to tell)
It overcomes heaven by pray'r:
Permits a vile worm of the dust,
With God to commune as a friend
To hope his forgiveness as just,
And look for his love to the end.

3 It says to the mountains, "Depart,"
That stand betwixt God and the soul;
It binds up the broken in heart,
And makes their sore consciences whole;
Bids sins of a crimson-like dye
Be spotless as snow, and as white;
And proves such a sinner as I
As pure as an angel of light.

Hart, Joseph, was born in London in 1712. His early life is involved in obscurity. His education was fairly good; and from the testimony of his brother-in-law, and successor in the ministry in Jewin Street, the Rev. John Hughes, "his civil calling was" for some time "that of a teacher of the learned languages." His early life, according to his own Experience which he prefaced to his Hymns, was a curious mixture of loose conduct, serious conviction of sin, and endeavours after amendment of life, and not until Whitsuntide, 1757, did he realize a permanent change, which was brought about mainly through his attending divine service at the Moravian Chapel, in Fetter Lane, London, and hearing a sermon on Rev. iii. 10.
