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

8,7.
by H. Lyte
1
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
2
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.
