Glory and Grace in Christ.
2 See where it shines in Jesus' face,
3 The spacious earth and spreading flood
4 But in his looks a glory stands,-
5 Grace! 'tis a sweet, a charming theme;
1 GRACE! 'tis a charming sound,
Heaven with the echo shall resound,
And all the earth shall hear.
2 Grace first contrived a way
3 Grace taught my wandering feet
4 Grace all the work shall crown,
Salvation by Christ.
1 AND is salvation brought so near,
2 I ask not, who to heaven shall scale,
That Christ, the Savior, thence may come; Or who earth's inmost depths assail, To bring him from the dreary tomb.
3 From heaven, on wings of love, he flew,
4 I sing salvation brought so near,
No more on earth expiring lie;
Salvation by Christ. Ps. 85.
1 SALVATION is forever nigh
The souls that fear and trust the Lord; And grace, descending from on high, Fresh hopes of glory shall afford.
2 Now truth and honor shall abound,
3 His righteousness is gone before,
Blessing God for spiritual Blessings in Christ.
2 Ten thousand gifts of love
From thee through him descend,
And bear our souls above
To joys that never end:
To heaven they soar,
3 Ten thousand songs of praise
1 BEHOLD, where in a mortal form
The virtues, all in Jesus met,
2 To spread the rays of heavenly light,
To preach glad tidings to the poor,
3 'Midst keen reproach and cruel scorn,
4 In the last hour of deep distress, Before his Father's throne, With soul resigned, he bowed, and said, "Thy will, not mine, be done!"
5 Be Christ our Pattern and our Guide!
O, may we tread his holy steps,
The Example of Christ.
1 AND is the gospel peace and love?
2 Whene'er the angry passions rise,
And tempt our thoughts or tongues to strife, To Jesus let us lift our eyes,
Bright Pattern of the Christian life.
3 O, how benevolent and kind!
How mild! how ready to forgive! Be this the temper of our mind,
And these the rules by which we live.
4 To do his heavenly Father's will Was his employment and delight; Humility and holy zeal
Shone through his life, divinely bright.
5 Dispensing good where'er he came,
