8 This now, with heav'n's resplendent hoft,
We echo thro’ the church's bounds;
Of our Redeemer's blood and wounds:
9 By this our mark will we be known,
In heav'n, and in the earth abroad,
And ev'ry faith, and ev'ry God,
The real and genuine fruits and effe&ts of Saving Faith.
HE finner that truly believes,
• And trusts in his crucify'd God, His justification receives,
Redemption in full thro' his blood : Tho' thousands and thousands of foes
Against him in malice unite, Their rage
he thro' 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 fhall eternally fail
When Jesus shall fall from his throne: For Hell against both must prevail;
Since Jesus and he are but one.
And brings such falvation as this,
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.
It vanquishes death and despair :
It overcomes heav'n 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.
5 It says to the mountains, depart,
That stand betwixt God and the soul; It binds
the broken in heart,
Be spotless as snow and as white;
As pure as an angel of light.

It purifies the heart :
Join hands and never part.
2 The happy state of pardon doth
An holy life infer;
They never funder'd were.
z From precious faith, a precious strife
Of precious virtues flow,
And precious duties too.
4 A happy finner I remain,
But sin hath lost its pow'r ;
His wounds my strength and tow'r.
No tiresome load impose;
His will with pleasure does.
Blafphemes thy Jesu's name;
7 Those souls, whom faith with Christ unites,
Are poaceful, calm, ferene,
And keeps his temple clean.

And make their empty boast
While they are flaves to lust. 2 Vain are our fancy's airy flights,
If faith be cold and dead ; None but a living pow'r unites
To Christ the living head. 3 'Tis faith that changes all the heart;
'Tis faith that works by love, That bids all finful joys depart,
And lifts the thoughts above.
By a celestial pow'r;
In the decisive hour.
5 True faith obeys her author's will,
As well as trust his grace ; A pard’ning God is jealous still
For his own holiness,
6 When from the curse he sets us free,
He makes our natures clean;
The minister of sin.
And seals our peace with God;
By water and by blood.

The Christian's happy life.
The Lamb and walk with him below ?
Who them did from the world redeem. 2 They trust the Lord, whose vocal blood
Saith, All things work together for good ;
And fing, Thy will, my God, be done. 3 In these our Saviour dwells, and is
Their strength, and righteousness, and bliss;
