We are by the apostle taught

We are by the apostle taught

Author: Paul Henkel
Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 We are by the Apostle taught,
And in his doctrine see,
How carefull every christian ought
In all their lives to be.

2 The Gospel brings the truth to sight,
And spreads a bright display!
And ignorance like, as the night,
Thereby is drove away.

3 This blessed light to us is shown,
O may it shine within,
To make our state by nature known,
And feel the weight of sin.

4 Yet sure Salvation thro' the blood
Of Jesus we obtain!
And thus restor'd unto our God,
And made his own again.

5 Then, O ye christians pray be wise;
Exert your inmost pow'r--
Strive from the sleep of sin to rise,
Awake and sleep no more.

6 The night is past and fully spent,
Let works of darkness cease:
The blessed light that Jesus sent
Creates establish'd peace.
