13*. Child of God, by Christ's Salvation

by H. Lyte
Child of God, by Christ's salvation,
Rise o'er sin, and fear, and care—
Joy to find in every station
Something still to do or bear;
Think what Spirit dwells within thee—
Think what Father's smiles are thine—
Think that Jesus died to win thee—
Child of God! wilt thou repine?
Romans 8:16; Acts 4:12; Romans 8:16; 1 Corinthians 15:3
Haste thee on from grace to glory,
Armed by faith and winged by prayer,
Heaven's eternal day's before thee,
God's right hand shall guide thee there;
Soon shall close thine earthly mission,
Soon shall pass thy pilgrim days,
Hope shall change to glad fruition,
Faith to sight, and prayer to praise.
