Free Grace.-Rom. iii. 24.
Took my place and vengeance bore,
Me to save for evermore.
Foes without, nor foes within,
2 His love he fix'd on me before time began, Nor will he take from me the love he had then; Determined to save me, he bore all my guilt; And rather than lose me his own blood he spilt. 578.
The same.- Rom. v. 6, 8, 9.
The Love of God to his people.—Jer. xxxi. 3.
He speaks, and that almighty voice,
Proclaims his grace abroad. 2 How wonderful, how grand the plan!
All Deity's engaged
From Satan's power and rage. 3 The Father loved us ere we fell,
And will for ever love;
His love from Zion move. 4 'Twas love that moved him to ordain
A Surety just and good;
Of all for whom he stood.
He loves beyond degree;
The Lord to die for me.
When Jesus he reveals To men oppress'd with sin and woes,
He all their sorrows heals. 7 The Three-in-One and One-in-Three,
In love for ever rest;
And with his love be bless'd.
Sinners married to Christ. Jer. iii. 14.

For me he has paid the long score. 2 [These truths to my heart he proclaim'd,
When helpless I stood and distress'd,
Which filld me with horror and fear Till Jesus, my Lord, came in view.] 3 He saw me distress'd, and he said,
“ Fear not, I procured thy discharge;
But surely I ne'er shall forget;
8. 7. 4. The Love of Christ immeasurable.Jno. jii. 16. High beyond imagination
Is the love of God to man;
Nor can its dimensions know; 'Tis a boundless, endless river, And its waters freely flow:
O ye thirsty, Come and taste its streams below. 3 Jesus loved, and loves for ever,
Zion on his heart does dwell;
All is settled,
8. 7. 4.
" I lay down my life for the sheep."-John x. 15, O my soul, admire and wonder;
Jesus lived and died for thee;
Once did live, and liked it well, But the God of my salvation, Died to save my soul from hell:
Precious Saviour, Let me ever with thee dwell.] 3 All the debts I had contracted,
He, in mercy, call’d his own;
Paid all charges,
