Hymn 34 part 2

by
 None excluded from hope.
Rom.
1:16; 1 Cor.
1:24.
Jesus, thy blessings are not few, Nor is thy gospel weak; Thy grace can melt the stubborn Jew, And bow th' aspiring Greek.
Wide as the reach of Satan's rage Doth thy salvation flow; 'Tis not confined to sex or age, The lofty or the low.
While grace is offered to the prince, The poor may take their share; No mortal has a just pretence To perish in despair Be wise, ye men of strength and wit, Nor boast your native powers; But to his sovereign grace submit, And glory shall be yours.
Come, all ye vilest sinners, come, He'll form your souls anew; His gospel and his heart have room For rebels such as you.
His doctrine is almighty love; There's virtue in his name To turn the raven to a dove, The lion to a lamb.
