S.M.

Oh what a debt we owe
 
To Him who shed His blood,
 
And cleansed our souls, and gave us power
 
To stand before His God.
Matthew 26:28; 1 John 1:7; Ephesians 2:18
2
Saviour and Lord! we own
 
The riches of Thy grace;
 
For we can call Thy God, our God—
 
Can bow before His face.
1 John 4:14; 1 Corinthians 15:47; Ephesians 1:7; Ephesians 2:7; John 20:17
3
Thy Father, too, above,
 
We worship as our own,
 
Who gave with Thee the Spirit's cry,
 
To us His sons foreknown.
Ephesians 1:3; Galatians 4:6; Romans 8:14-15,29
