299 (C.M.) John Kent

When from the precepts to the cross

The humble sinner turns,

His brightest deeds he counts but dross,

And o’er his vileness mourns.

God, on the table of his heart,

Inscribes His love and fear;

He loves the law in ev’ry part,

But takes no refuge there.

Thus gospel, law, and justice too,

Conspire to set him free;

Reflect, my soul, admire and view

What God hath done for thee.
