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.
