A faith thou must thyself impart;
A faith that would by works be shown,
A faith that purifies the heart;

3 A faith that doth the mountains move,
A faith that shows our sins forgiven,
A faith that sweetly works by love,
And ascertains our claim to heaven.

4 This is the faith we humbly seek,
The faith in thy all-cleansing blood;
That faith which doth for sinners speak,
Oh, let it speak us up to God!
