Hymn/Song Information

O beware of fondly thinking God accepts




O beware of fondly thinking
God accepts thee, for thy tears;
Are the shipwrecked saved by sinking?
Can the ruined rise by fears?


Oh, beware of trust ill-grounded;
‘Tis but fancied faith at most,
If you’re cured before you’re wounded
If you’re saved before you’re lost.


Words of loud and ready talkers,
Clearest creeds will not suffice;
Broken hearts and humble walkers
These are dear in Jesus’s eyes.


Party zeal and disputation,
Talent, knowledge, all are vain;
Every one who gains salvation
Must through grace be born again.
