4 Now I esteem their mirth and wine
Too dear to purchase with my blood; Lord, 't is enough that Thou art mine, My life, my portion and my God.
GRACE AND REDEMPTION.
ITS SOURCE - GOD'S LOVE.
AMAZING grace! how sweet the sound
That saved a soul like me!
I once was lost, but now am found,
2 'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear, 'Twas grace my fears relieved;
How precious did that grace appear,
3 Full many a danger, toil, and snare
'Tis grace that brought me safe thus far, And grace will lead me home.
4 And when this flesh and heart shall fail,
I shall possess within the veil
YRACE! 't is a charming sound,
Gr Harmonious to the ear;
Heaven with the echo shall resound,
2 Grace first contrived the way To save rebellious man;
And all the steps that grace display
To tread the heavenly road;
4 Grace taught my soul to pray,
5 Grace all the work shall crown,
It lays in heaven the topmost stone,
AISE your triumphant songs
Let the wide earth resound the deeds
Celestial grace has done.
2 Sing how eternal love
Its chief Beloved chose,
And bade Him raise our wretched race
3 His hand no thunder bears,
No terror clothes His brow;
4 'Twas mercy fill'd the throne,
When Christ was sent with pardon down
5 Now, sinners, dry your tears;
8s, 7s & 4s
VERY fallen soul, by sinning,
But Thy love, without beginning,
Shall in life, through Jesus reign.
2 Pause, my soul, adore and wonder:
Thanks, eternal thanks to Thee!
3 Since that love had no beginning,
Keep, oh, keep me, Lord, from sinning;
Make me walk in
4 When I quit this feeble mansion,
Through Thy Spirit
5 When the angel sounds the trumpet;
When my Saviour comes to judgment,
Let me triumph
In Thy righteousness as mine.
11s & 8s.
IN songs of sublime adoration and praise,
Break forth and extol the great Ancient of Days,
2 His love, from eternity, burn'd for our race, Broke forth and discover'd its flame;
And now with the cords of His kindness He draws,
And brings us to love His great name.
3 Oh, had He not pitied the state we were in, Our bosoms His love had ne'er felt:
We all would have lived, would have died too in sin,
And sunk with the load of our guilt.
4 What was there in man that could merit esteem, Or give the Creator delight?
even so, Father," we ever must sing, Becaus it seem'd good in Thy sight.
5 Urged on by His grace, did the Saviour appear, The bearer of help from above:
Now all who are thirsting may freely draw near
6 Then give all the glory to His holy name, To Him all the glory belongs;
Be ours the high joys still to sound forth His fame And crown Him in each of our songs.
LOVE! beyond conception great,
That form'd the vast, stupendous plan! Where all divine perfections meet To reconcile rebellious man?
2 There wisdom shines in fullest blaze, And justice all her rights maintains: Astonish'd angels stoop to gaze,
While mercy o'er the guilty reigns.
3 Yes, mercy reigns, and justice too
And now He fills the mercy-seat.
4 Such are the wonders of our God,
5 With grateful songs then let our souls
WAS a wand'ring sheep,
I did not love the fold,
I did not love my Shepherd's voice,
