The Gospel Trust

I have a calling high,
A charge to me is given,
To bear to men who die
The saving word from heaven.
O world and flesh, give way, ye must!
I’m with the gospel put in trust!
‘Tis trust to own the land,
Great trust to sit on throne,
But greater trust to stand
And Jesus Christ make known.
Throne, earth and princes all are dust,
I’m with the gospel put in trust!
Swords may a glory reap,
And trumpets blare a fame,
And slain and slayer sweep
Down to eternal flame;
But, O, to save men, died the Just!
I’m with the gospel put in trust!
Above me is my God;
I hear His urgent voice,
He speaks of Jesus’ blood
And resurrection joys.
No time have I for ease or lust,
I’m with the gospel put in trust!
