Representative Text

1 Where'er the Gospel truth is taught,
The way of life to light is brought--
The ignorant are made to know,
Their Saviour, and to serve him too.

2 The greatest gifts on man bestow'd,
That is to know the living God;
And Jesus Christ his only son,
And what he hath for sinners done.

3 Jesus who for our sins aton'd,
Will be confess'd and freely own'd!
The gifts he doth for us provide,
Are by the Holy Ghost applied.

4 What changes in the heart take place,
When sinners feel the work of grace;
They feel the pow'rful Gospel word,
And know that Jesus is their Lord.

5 The pow'rs of darkness are dispell'd!
The soul with light and life is fill'd--
Enabled by a heav'nly pow'r,
To love their Saviour evermore.

6 Tho' diff'rent gifts the spirit give,
Yet all from him alone derive;
Sufficient grace withal is giv'n,
To fit each seeking soul for heav'n.
