Dependence on Christ alone
1. If ever it could come to pass,
That sheep of Christ might fall away,
My fickle, feeble soul, alas!
Would fall a thousand times a day;
Were not thy love as firm as free,
Thou soon would’st take it, Lord, from me.
2. I on thy promises depend;
At least I to depend desire;
That thou wilt love me to the end,
Be with me in temptation’s fire;
Wilt for me work, and in me too,
And guide me right and bring me through.
3. No other stay have I beside;
If these can alter, I must fall;
I look to thee to be supplied
With life, with will, with power, with all.
Rich souls may glory in their store,
But Jesus will relieve the poor.
Now before the feast of the passover, when Jesus knew that his hour was come that he should depart out of this world unto the Father, having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them unto the end.
Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
1 Peter 1:5
