CONVERSION OF ZACCHEUS




A Sight of Jesus, with his eyes,
Zaccheus longed to have:
But mark how sure salvation flies
To them that God will save.


However casual it may seem,
That Jesus passed that way;
'Twas all according to the scheme
That in his counsel lay.


Long in the cov'nant of his grace
His worthless name had been;
His stature and his dwelling-place
Were both contained therein.


“Zaccheus, haste,” the Saviour said,
“I come this way for thee;
Though thou in trespasses art dead,
Salvation thou shalt see.”
'Twas not that he was Abraham's son,
In ties of flesh and blood;
For he was saved by grace alone,
As one elect of God.


Redemption through a Saviour's name,
He deemed an idle dream;
He to salvation never came—
Salvation came to him.


His call by grace, ere time begun,
Was fixed in day and hour:
And he could neither will nor run
'Till Jesus gave him power.
