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

The One Thing Needful

1. What a precious, needful thing,
Is the Lord and Saviour!
Zion shall his mercy sing,
Now, henceforth, and ever.
In him a rich fulness dwells,
And is freely given;
Law and conscience Jesus quells;
Crooked things makes even.

 

2. Mercy from his bosom flows,
Free as any river;
He redresses all the woes
Of a weak believer.
Sinners in corruption’s pit
Know they greatly need him;
He and he alone is fit
From it to relieve them.
