87. In Jesus Himself (the Father's Delight)

by Kent
In Jesus Himself (the Father's delight),
The saints, without blame, appear in God's sight;
And while He in Jesus our souls shall approve,
So long shall the Father continue His love.
Matthew 3:17; Ephesians 1:4; Ephesians 1:6
In Jesus, free grace all blessings secures;
We know and rejoice that all things are ours;
And God from His purpose will never remove,
But love us, and bless us, and "rest in His love."
Ephesians 1:3; 1 Corinthians 3:21; Ephesians 3:11; Zechariah 3:17
“And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” (Matthew 3:17)
