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)
“Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.” (Hebrews 13:5)
“But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light.” (1 Peter 2:9)
“For who maketh thee to differ from another? and what hast thou that thou didst not receive? now if thou didst receive it, why dost thou glory, as if thou hadst not received it?” (1 Corinthians 4:7)
“For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.” (1 Timothy 6:7)
“To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious. Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded. Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner.” (1 Peter 2:4-7)
