Showing the state of our nation in the light of God’s Holy Word

Faith

1. Faith! ’tis a precious grace,
Where’er it is bestowed;
It boasts of a celestial birth,
And is the gift of God.

 

2. Jesus it owns a King,
An all-atoning Priest;
It claims no merits of its own,
But looks for all in Christ.

 

3. To him it leads the soul,
When filled with deep distress;
Flies to the fountain of his blood,
And trusts his righteousness.

 

4. Since ’tis thy work alone,
And that divinely free,
Come, Holy Spirit, and make known
The power of faith in me.

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God.
Ephesians 2:8

 

Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Jesus Christ.
2 Peter 1:1
