The Gospel originating in Sovereign Mercy.
C. M. Canterbury. Barby. 170
Salvation by Grace.
How great our guilt has been;
And all our lives were sin.
Forever love his name,
Of folly, sin, and shame.
Which our own hands have done; f But we are saved by sovereign grace,
Abounding through his Son.
That all our hopes begin:
Our souls are washed from sin.
Who hung upon the tree,
On such dry bones as we.
And justified by grace,
And see our Father's face.
Be everlasting honors given ;
He calls our wandering feet to heaven.
But of his own abundant grace,
And forms a people for his praise.
To rescue rebels doomed to die;
Before he spread the starry sky.
And makes his Father's counsels known; Declares the great transaction past,
And brings immortal blessings down. P 5 He dies—and in that dreadfu! night,
Did all the powers of hell destroy ; f He rose! and brought our heaven to light,
And took possession of the joy. 172
S. M. Silver Street, Peptonville,
Harmonious to the ear!
And all the earth shall hear.
To save rebellious man;
Which drew the wondrous plan.
To tread the heavenly road :
While pressing on to God.
Through everlasting days:
C. M. Lanesboro'. Princeton. 73
The divine Character exhibited in the Gospel
How high thy wonders rise!
Known through the earth by thousand signs,
By thousand through the skies.
Their motions speak thy skill ;
We read thy patience still.
To save rebellious worms,
In their divinest forms ;-
Nor dares a creature guess
The justice or the grace.
Adorn the heavenly plains ;
And try their choicest strains.
In that immortal song!
And love command my tongue.

The blessing promised long;
In this triumphant song:

And heavenly peace on earth;
At the Redeemer's birth!”

And loud repeat their songs
And heavenly peace on earth;
At our Redeemer's birth !!

And join th' angelic throng;
To wake the cheerful song.
With messages from heaven. > 3 Justice and grace, with sweet accord,
His rising beams adorn;
To us a Saviour's born.
In highest words be paid ;
And by our lives displayed.

“ This day is Jesus born!”

All hail the happy morn:
And sing—" The Saviour's born !"
