He freely and faithfully gives
Yea, down to old age he will keep,
The Fulfilment of God's Promise sure.-Hab. ii, 3.
They're great, and exceeding great too;
Endeavour'd, with reason and wit,
In grace's magazine:
2 Poor trembling sinner, come,
And knock at mercy's door;
The Lord relieves the poor;
Nor will he send them empty back. 3 He came to save the lost,
Nor will he change his mind;
He will not leave behind;
“My soul, wait thou only upon God.”—Ps. lxii. 5.
From Jesus' wounded side;
Instead of trusting sovereign grace. 2 O that our souls could wait
At all times on the Lord;
To souls that trust alone in God. 3 The Lord is rich indeed,
And richly will supply
My expectation is from God;
Then wait, my soul, upon the Lord. 4 If darkness him surround,
His mercy's still the same;
The soul that waits on him;
“ The Lord be with you all."—2 Thess, iii. 16.
To teach you his own will;
To Zion's heavenly hill.
And prove his truth divine;
And make his counsels shine. 3 Whatever be your state or case,
The Lord himsełf be near;
And make your passage clear. 4 Thus may you prove his promise true,
And glorify his name;
While life and breath remain.
And land you safe above;
In singing, “God is love!"
The Believer in Christ, secure.-John x. 28.
Whose name is Jehovah, I AM,
Though devils against him unite; His faith stands in Jesus's power, And Christ all his battles will fight: The feeble shall all be made strong; Then let them rejoice in their King: The warfare will cease before long, And they a sweet victory sing.
633, “ Having loved his own which were in the world."-John xiii, 1. The love of Christ is rich and free; Fix'd on his own eternity; Nor earth, nor hell, can it remove; Long as he lives, his own he'll love.
2 His loving heart engaged to be
Their everlasting Surety: 'Twas love that took their cause in band,
And love maintains it to the end.
Nor death, nor hell, nor sin, nor law,
He'll love his own to endless day. 4 Love has redeem'd his sheep with blood;
And love will bring them safe to God;
Aud love will finish all their strife.
Nor aught can him from Zion wean:
Can make his love from her depart.
In endless bliss, his own shall prove
Saints safe in Christ.-John x. 29.
If Jesus be but there:
While Jesus lives, they can't be lost. 2 What though their house with God,
Be not as they could wish;
