PRAISE FOR FAITH




Of all the gifts Thy love bestows,
Thou Giver of all good,
Not heaven itself a richer knows
Than the Redeemer's blood.


Faith too that trusts
the blood through grace
From that same love we gain;
Else, sweetly as it suits our case,
The gift had been in vain.


Till thou thy teaching pow’r apply,
Our hearts refuse to see;
And weak, as a distempered eye,
Shut out the view of thee.


Blind to the merits of thy Son,
What misery we endure!
Yet fly that hand, from which alone,
We could expect a cure.


We praise Thee,
and would praise Thee more;
To Thee our all we owe;
The precious Saviour, and the power
That makes Him precious too.


---Alternative verses---


And yet, though well it suits our case,
That gift still proves in vain,
Till faith and renovating grace,
From the same hand we gain.


Till thou thy teaching pow’r apply,
Our minds refuse to see;
And weak, as a distempered eye,
Shut out the view of thee.
