761 (C.M.) John Kent

The glorious gospel of our God

Is joyful news from heav'n;

Salvation free in Jesus' blood,

And life eternal giv'n.

'Tis not the gospel's joyful sound;

That fallen men declare,

When Sinai's thunders they confound

With Zion's beauties fair.

He needs no creature's power or skill

His finished work to mend;

But works His own eternal will

As wisdom did intend.

When Uzzah stretched his puny hand,

Behold his awful fall;

The shaking ark secure shall stand

When God designs it shall.

If 'tis of works, and not of grace,

No crown shall mortals have;

Not all the good of Adam's race

A single soul can save.

To God, the Father's love divine,

The Spirit, and the Son,

Let everlasting honors shine

While years eternal run.
