Father of Jesus Christ my Lord My Saviour and my

Father of Jesus Christ, my Lord,
My Saviour, and my Head,
I trust in thee, whose powerful word
Hath raised him from the dead.

Thou know'st for my offence he died,
And rose again for me,
Fully and freely justified,
That I might live to thee.

Eternal life to all mankind
Thou hast in Jesus given;
And all who seek, in him shall find
The happiness of heaven.

O God! thy record I believe,
In Abraham's footsteps tread;
And wait, expecting to receive,
The Christ, the promised seed.

Faith in thy power thou seest I have,
For thou this faith hast wrought;
Dead souls thou callest
from their grave,
And speakest worlds from nought.

Things that are not,
as though they were,
Thou callest by their name;
Present with thee the future are,
With thee, the great I AM.

In hope, against all human hope,
Self-desperate, I believe;
Thy quickening word
shall raise me up,
Thou shalt thy Spirit give.

The thing surpasses all my thought,
But faithful is my Lord;
Through unbelief I stagger not,
For God hath spoke the word.

Faith, mighty faith,
the promise sees,
And looks to that alone;
Laughs at impossibilities,
And cries, It shall be done!

To thee the glory of thy power
And faithfulness I give;
I shall in Christ, in that glad hour,
And Christ in me shall live.

Obedient faith, that waits on thee,
Thou never wilt reprove:
But thou wilt form thy Son in me,
And perfect me in love.
