Hymn/Song Information

So let our lips and lives express The holy Gospel




So let our lips and lives express
The holy Gospel we profess;
So let our works and virtues shine,
To prove the doctrine all divine.


Thus shall we best proclaim abroad
The honours of our Saviour God,
When the salvation reigns within,
And grace subdues the power of sin.


Our flesh and sense must be denied,
Passion and envy, lust and pride;
While justice, temperance, truth, and love,
Our inward piety approve.


Religion bears our spirits up,
While we expect that blessèd hope,
The bright appearance of the Lord,
And faith stands leaning on His Word.


---Alternative verses---


So let our lips and lives express
The holy Gospel we profess;
That men may see our virtues shine,
And own the doctrine is divine.


Thus shall we best proclaim abroad
The glory of our Saviour God,
When the Spirit reigns within,
And grace subdues the power of sin.


Self must be steadily denied,
Passion subdued and sinful pride;
While justice, temperance, truth, and love,
Our faith and our adoption prove.


And let this bear our spirits up,
We toil and strive sustained by hope,
E'er long to see our glorious Lord,
Return, by heaven and earth adored.
