1. Of All the Gifts Thy Love Bestows

C.M.
by Cowper
1
Of all the gifts Thy love bestows,
 
Thou Giver of all good!
 
Not heaven itself a richer knows
 
Than the Redeemer's blood.
James 1:14; 1 Timothy 6:17; 1 Peter 1:18-19; Revelation 1:5
2
Faith, too, that trusts the blood through grace,
 
From that same love we gain;
 
Else, sweetly, as it suits our case,
 
The gift had been in vain.
Ephesians 2:8
3
We praise Thee, and would praise Thee more,
 
To Thee our all we owe;
 
The precious Saviour, and the power
 
That makes Him precious too.
Hebrews 13:5; 1 Peter 2:9; 1 Corinthians 4:7; 1 Timothy 6:7; 1 Peter 2:4-7
“But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.” (James 1:14)
“Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy.” (1 Timothy 6:17)
“Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers. But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.” (1 Peter 1:18-19)
