Hymn 12

by
 Free grace in revealing Christ.
Luke 10:21.
Jesus, the man of constant grief, A mourner all his days; His spirit once rejoiced aloud, And tuned his joy to praise: "Father, I thank thy wondrous love, That hath revealed thy Son To men unlearned, and to babes Has made thy gospel known.
"The mysteries of redeeming grace Are hidden from the wise, While pride and carnal reasonings join To swell and blind their eyes.
" Thus doth the Lord of heav'n and earth His great decrees fulfil, And orders all his works of grace By his own sovereign will.
