780 (S.M.) Benjamin Beddome

Faith! 'tis a precious grace,

Where'er it is bestowed;

It boasts of a celestial birth,

And is the gift of God!

Jesus it owns a King,

An all-atoning Priest:

It claims no merit of its own,

But looks for all in Christ.

To Him it leads the soul,

When filled with deep distress —

Flies to the fountain of His blood,

And trusts His righteousness.

Since 'tis Thy work alone,

And that, divinely free;

Lord, send the Spirit of Thy Son

To work this faith in me!
